Modem not recognized on Compac Presario


I am running SUSE 9.3 on a Compac SR1500NX Presario. It is a duo boot with Windows XP.

This log-in is with a Robtics external modem but I would like to use the internal modem which acording to windows is a Motorola SM56.

Is it possible to use the internal modem?
