internal modem and virtual pc running

I can't find a way to conncet to the net with Windows NT on a Macintosh running Virtual PC. The problem is that I can't get NT to regognise the internal IMac modem as a default modem or some such.
Any ideas out there?

I had a similar problem and I fixed it like this.  Be sure to get into the preferences of Virtual PC and specify "internal modem" in one of the COM PORTS. In the other COM PORT specify the printer. There seems to be a glitch and VPC confuses both ports, therefore not recognizing the modem.

Be sure to check the modem under the appropriate control panel as well as the Dial Up connection and the Dial UP adapter in the Network Configuration.
