what modem do you own? Lots of drivers for software modems are available at
www.linuxant.com or else at linmodems.org
if you own a (hayes compatible) hardware modem you don't need drivers at all.

Under linux you won't need any drivers if you buy a hayes
compatible hardware modem.

Mine is an e-tech external hardware modem (www.e-tech.nu),
I just had to connect it to the serial port, it was recognized directly,
and it has worked perfectly ever since.

Don't bother with software modems unless you really have to!

maybe you can get a tip or two from these links
especially the first one. Or ask these people about
the codes.

Modem (problems may occur due to WinModem)
http://www.linmodems.org/
http://start.at/modem
http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/
http://www.linuxant.com/ -> drivers -> Conexant (Conexant)
http://axion.physics.ubc.ca/ppp-linux.html (PPP)
