/dev/modem should be a link ot what ever serial port you are using e.g. ttyS3. If you know the serial port then do a ln -s /dev/ttySX /dev/modem - if there is a directory called modem in the /dev/ directory can ya post what is tehre. also - what type of modem?

Juts try

#minicom -s

And go to Serial Setup
there set device as /dev/ttyS0

then save the setting and start working:D
