I don't think most Agere modems are supported. You should go here and get the scanModem tool which is a small script that will pump out all the information regarding wether or not it is supported, where to get driver source etc. Just follow the scanModem link but read along the way.

You'll have to supply more information.
Boot into Fedora and hit any key at the grub boot splash for more booting options and then type (a) to add kernel arguments. At the kernel line, add a (1) to the end of the line after a space as shown below:
Code:
grub append> ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogUo100 rhgb quiet 1
This will boot Fedora in single user mode which is command line. As root, issue the two commands posted below separately and post the output of each command for better assistance.
Code:
df
fdisk -l

I'v solved this problem:
I've installed ubuntu!!!!
but now I have another problm now:
ubuntu doesn't recognized my modem,I used modemscan and this is modem data:
Only plain text email is forwarded by the DISCUSS@linmodems.org List Server.
Do use the following as the email Subject Line:
SomeName, YourCountry kernel 2.6.20-15-generic
This will alert cogent experts, and distinguish cases in the Archives.
YourCountry will enable Country Code guidance.
Occassionally responses are blocked by an Internet Provider mail filters.
So in a day, also check the Archived responses at http://www.linmodems.org .

Several modems are supported by drivers with ALSA, the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture software.

ALSAversion = 1.0.13

Modem or candidate host audio card have firmware information and diagnostics:

Writing Smartlink.txt
============ end Smartlink section =====================

Completed candidate modem analyses.

The base of the UDEV device file system is: /dev/.udev

Versions adequately match for the compiler installed: 4.1.2
and the compiler used in kernel assembly: 4.1.2



Minimal compiling resources appear complete:
make utility - /usr/bin/make
Compiler version 4.1
linuc_headers base folder /lib/modules/2.6.20-15-generic/build

However some compilations and executable functions may need additional files,
in the FileNames.h (so called kernel "h"eaders) collection installed in /usr/include/ .
For martian_modem, additional required packages are libc6-dev (and for Debian/Ubuntu, linux-libc-dev). The also required headers of package libc6 are commonly installed by default.



If a driver compilation files with message including some lack of some FileName.h (stdio.h for example.
Some additional kernel-header files need installation to /usr/include.
For Debian/Ubuntu related distributions, run the following command to display the needed package list:
$ sudo apt-get -s install linux-kernel-devel
While some of the files may be on the install CD, others may have to be found through http://packages.ubuntu.com

For Ubuntu Feisty, additional packages required were:
libc6-dev linux-libc-dev
available through http://packages.ubuntu.com/ , if not on the install CD.
Such packages may have different names for other Linux distributions.
Try installing just the libc6-dev, then test the compile again.


Checking pppd properties:
-rwsr-xr-- 1 root dip 269224 2007-04-05 07:11 /usr/sbin/pppd

In case of an "error 17" "serial loopback" problem, see:
http://phep2.technion.ac.il/linmodem.../msg02637.html

To enable dialout without Root permission do:
$ su - root (not for Ubuntu)
sudo chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd
or under Ubuntu related Linuxes
sudo chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd

Checking settings of: /etc/ppp/options
asyncmap 0
noauth
crtscts
lock

proxyarp
lcp-echo-interval 30

In case of a message like:
Warning: Could not modify /etc/ppp/pap-secrets: Permission denied
see http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/biga.../msg04656.html

Read Modem/YourSystem.txt concerning other COMM channels: eth0
Which can interfere with Browser naviagation.

Don't worry about the following, it is for the experts
should trouble shooting be necessary.

could you please help me?what is my modem and where can I find it's drier?

It appears there is a modem which is part of the sound card, the sound card should work, but the modem is not supported by Linux.
At the top of this form is an e-mail address to linmodem maintainers who have tons of experience in this field if you would like their opinion. As mentioned, you need to put the following in the subject field of your e-mail:
Code:
SomeName, YourCountry kernel 2.6.20-15-generic Ubuntu
Replace "SomeName" with some name, and "YourCountry" with your country and copy/past the contents of this "modemdata.txt" file in the email, keep an eye on the archives as your case and their responce will show up there. There is a link to the archives on the first linmodems web page.
Code:
For candidate modem in PCI bus: 00:1b.0
Class 0403: 8086:27d8 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G
Primary PCI_id NEW_softmodem_8086:27d8
Support type needed or chipset: slmodemd
It also appears you have a pci modem called smartlink, which is supported by Linux. ScanModem also wrote a file called Smartlink.txt which will have the information as to where to get the source for compiling drivers. There is probably a pre-compiled binary for Ubuntu already where you won't have to compile your own, which should be mentioned in the Smartlink.txt if there is one.

If you do have to compile your own drivers, you'll need to make sure the following packages are installed:

gcc
gcc-4.1
linux-headers-2.6.20-15-generic
libc6

Installing those four packages should also install a few required dependencies. Install whichever ones are available when viewing the list of packages via system/administration/synaptic_package_manager, if some are not available off the CD, you may not need it.

Smart Link drivers are included in the repositories of a lot of the distros under different names such as "smart mod" - "lt modem" etc. If you will list your distro someone here may be able to give you the name or you can go to the Smart Link modem web site and they have the driver you can compile. If you're a newbie to linux I suggest trying to find one your package manager will handle.

They should be on the CD, use synaptic package manager as mentioned in a prior post to see if they are available off the CD and install from there if needed. Also read the Smartlink.txt scanModem wrote, it should have the instructions on what to do.
EDIT: Keep in mind, it could be a couple days before the linmodem maintainers respond, they do this in their free time.
