Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You can just use KPPP that comes with KDE and it automatically configures the dial-up modem and connects to the net. Meanwhile, is you modem internal or external? Beacuse it is easier to configure an external modem.

not really, for my modem, which is a connexant HCF modem, i had to get drivers, so it really depends on the modem. Do you know the company that made it? Sometimes the company makes linux drivers, but not many. and like UltimaGuy said, is it internal, or external?
Distribution: Ubuntu - Fedora - or whatever works or gets handed to me.
if the modem is conexant check there web page, they develope drivers for linux for some modems, onr tip if you don't know where your modem is, in which tty i mean, use kppp and in device keep switching ttys until in query modem you get a respond. and it's better to setup the bios as a plug n play aware os to "no" so the resources of the devices you have are managed by the motherboard. goodluck everybody
