PCI modem blues!

Here's the story.

I have a 56k PCI modem manuafctured by Dynamode.
The ID on the chips is:
11229-14 9845 B67061-8 and
R6785-62 9845.B70985-3

I ran a utility I dowloaded from the Connexant website and the Modem was identified as ROCWELL HCF DATA/FAX/REMOTE TAM

the problem is that it is not recognised by Windows 98 as a PCI communications device and when I try various drivers manually it doesn't work.

I know I need a modem enumerator as well as a driver but I can't seem to find a setup program that installs both.

I think the modem is on COM2 but I'm not sure (is this the internal PCI slot?)  The PC is an old P75 and has a mouse plugged into the small serial port.  The large serial port is LPT1 (printer?)

Is this a software or hardware modem? (hardware I think)

Do I need to change any of the BIOS settings?

Any help appreciated as I am getting annoyed with it now!
This type of problem haunts me and I have even been known to just buy a new modem card because of the hassle!

thanks!
