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.

if you know the modem card name and numbers will be glad to look it up.
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.
