What do you mean HARD modem ? Is isapnp command see it ? Is your kernel configured for ISA support ?

Helo brabard,

     I know two types of modem: The winmodem (softmodem) and the Hard modem , my modem doesn't need a special driver to run on linux . Isapnp command see it and my kernel suports ISA.

Thank you

Oh , sorry , my mistake , when you said "to configure" i heard "to install" .
I know some triks of installing isa devices , but I think can't help with postinstall options of that modem ..

and you said "Isapnp command see it and my kernel suports ISA." so may be you can try the pppd to start setting the linux to call to the internet, have a check here also http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/BTI-PPP/surf.html to set your linux box as a ppp server (ie call in your linux box as a fax server or other service) have a check here http://www.tldp.org/LDP/nag/node107.html
