Modem Detection Problems


I have installed RHL8.0 on my Toshiba Laptop and I am having difficulties with my modem being detected. Below (esp. for CARLYWARLY) is the dump from running lspci (apologies for the formatting):

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corp. 82815 815 Chipset Host Bridge and Memory Controller Hub (rev 11)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corp. 82815 815 Chipset AGP Bridge (rev 11)
00:1e.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corp. 82801BAM/CAM PCI Bridge (rev 03)
00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corp. 82801BAM ISA Bridge (LPC) (rev 03)
00:1f.1 IDE interface: Intel Corp. 82801BAM IDE U100 (rev 03)
00:1f.2 USB Controller: Intel Corp. 82801BA/BAM USB (Hub #1) (rev 03)
00:1f.4 USB Controller: Intel Corp. 82801BA/BAM USB (Hub #2) (rev 03)
00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corp. 82801BA/BAM AC'97 Audio (rev 03)
=============================================
00:1f.6 Modem: Intel Corp. 82801BA/BAM AC'97 Modem (rev 03)
=============================================
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Trident Microsystems CyberBlade/XP (rev 63)
02:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corp. 82801BA/BAM/CA/CAM Ethernet Controller (rev 03)
02:0d.0 CardBus bridge: Toshiba America Info Systems ToPIC95 PCI to Cardbus Bridge with ZV Support (rev 31)
02:0d.1 CardBus bridge: Toshiba America Info Systems ToPIC95 PCI to Cardbus Bridge with ZV Support (rev 31)

This is contrary to Windows XP's listing of my modem details as a Toshiba Software Modem AMR (which is attached to COM3).

I do not come on (linuxquestions.org) at frequent intervals, so if some help is offered/information is requested, please check back the same time you post information the following day.
