Well, I checked out your model, well I think everything is compatible or could get working. I am unsure of your modem though. If it is a winmodem, it most likely won't work. You can try http://www.linmodems.org
and see if it is listed there to check its compatibilty if it is a winmodem.
Are you wanting to dual boot or just leave as a Linux machine. If you don't have much important info on your machine, give it a try I say, the worst that could happen is it doesn't work, and then you can just wipe it off and put windows back on, or if your dual booting, it wouldn't even affect your machine. What distro were you planning on using?
