You can disable the internal modem if it is integrated into the mobo by going into the BIOS (you should get a display of how to do this at bootup) and disabling it.  The external modem will plug into either one of the COM or USB ports.
If the internal modem is in a slot or has been added, you will need to remove it.  This should be a pretty easy procedure but if you are uncomfortable with making changes inside your computer it would be better to get a computer shop to do it.

it's not necessary to disable or remove Vaio internal modem. You can have 2 modems on the same PC without problem.

--------
Install driver for new modem, that's all ...

If internet is already configured for your "old" modem, go in "control panel" / " network ..."/ and modify your internet connexion ( right click - property ).
