Question Lucent modem V90+DSL Presario 5722


Hello Everyone and Greetings!

Just installed Mandrake 8.1 on my Compaq Presario 5722 (bought it in 1999) and you guessed it - "sorry, your modem is
busy." The modem is a Lucent V90+DSL. It doesn't say if it is
a winmodem - which I understand does not work with LINUX.

My question is this: will this modem work with this version of
LINUX?

If it does, do I need to install a driver package for it?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Also I am reading that out of 98M of RAM only a few megabytes
are free. Is this normal?

Thanks!
