most winmodems won't work with linux... you can check out linmodems.org and see if there is hope for your particular model, but i wouldn't get my hopes up too high...

=(

what method are you using to burn cds??? are you using mkisofs and cdrecord???

you might want to post the output of these:

cdrecord -scanbus

cat /etc/fstab

if you look in windows device manager or in linux run
cat /proc/pci|more
you might can spot the chipset on the riser modem, then look on the table at
linmodems to see if someone has hacked a driver or not.
if not, quit looking. either buy a different modem or give up immediately.

one of the most confusing things to new linux users is the many many ways to
accomplish any task. so, you'll need to tell what program you are using, and what
you tried to click, and any error messages you got. there are dozens of cd burning
programs for linux, but they are mostly frontends to mkisofs and cdrecord.
mkisofs makes an iso image, and cdrecord puts it on the disk.
