What is the exact modem model that you have? If you look that modem up on http://www.idir.net/~gromitkc/pci_list.html you should be able to find out if is one of the winmodems that a Linux driver supports and how to install said driver.

Winmodems are a plague. Save yourself a lot of frustration and get an external modem. A used one perhaps; even a 56k modem should come quite cheap.

Linuxant thats the solution
you go to www.linuxcant.com/drivers

It is quite triggy thow after finding the right modem driver the HSF should be the one for you
after unpacking and installing under hardware check it is using the right one HSFO and a number
just try them out,
then it should be ready for use with your dialer apps
