Using the modem sound card rather than a dedicated sound card

I was working with an old machine and it doesn't have a sound card. The modem card, however, has inputs for microphone and output for speakers. How can I use this modem sound card for all my system audio?

The manufacturer and model number would help to identify the device. Although some sound/modem cards were made, are you sure it's not just a speakerphone modem?

most modems that i have delt with these extra auxillary holes are not really for sound "soundcard"
they are what is mentioned above speakerphone and etc.

Many modems allow you to use them as a phone. The connectors are probably only for hooking up a headset. Mono, low power, zilch sound quality - not like a sound card.

It's probably just a speakerphone. I thought there might be some way to "re-route" another audio signal through it, anyway. (Even though it wasn't designed for it.) I just accepted TMJ's answer because he was first.
