Check out this web site:
http://learn.clemsonlinux.org/wiki/L...kpad_R31#Modem

which has your modem setup as:
Modem
Intel 82801CA/CAM AC'97 Modem Controller, a WinModem as they call them. Supported by the nice people at Smart Link (http://www.smlink.com/). Simply download the driver from their Linux support page (http://www.smlink.com/main/item.php?...=84&main_id=32), unpack the driver, and install:

Note: You will need the entire kernel source installed on your system. If you have any trouble, consult the README.


$ cd /home/username
$ tar zxvf slmodem-2.9.10.tar.gz
$ cd slmodem-2.9.10
$ make
$ su
# make install
Now you need to load the driver and set up the daemon program. Set your country code when you run the daemon.

# modprobe slamr
# /usr/sbin/slmodemd --country=USA /dev/slamr0 &
These commands must be run every time you want to use the modem, or you could have all this run whenever your computer starts. Copy the script provided with the driver and add the following line to your /etc/modules file:

slamr
# cp scripts/slmodemd /etc/init.d/
Now use your distribution's utility for adding the service slmodemd to init level 3. If you have trouble with this, check the README. Once all this is working, you can use the modem device /dev/ttySL0 with you favorite dialer - two good ones include kppp (http://ktown.kde.org/~kppp/) which comes with KDE, and Wv Dial (http://open.nit.ca/wiki/index.php?page=WvDial).
