Be my luck your pcmcia is too new and isn't supported in Linux.

I've older laptop, IBM Thinkpad 600X

pcmcia on mine works great in Linux with a 3com 10/100 pcmcia network card. Operates superbly on my LAN.

I've DSL internet so haven't got around to trying I've an older 28.8 pcmcia modem card I don't even know if it works or not but likely it does.

Ok here's the deal.
I finally got my modem "initialized" but still its not in working stat.
After spending some good time searching on the internet here is what i did.

1-Installed slmodemd with alsa support. (limodems.technio.ac.it)
2-Loaded the snd-via82xx-modem at runtime.
3-used 'slmodemd -alsa -c PAKISTAN hw:1'

this gave an output indicating that there is one /dev/ttySL0 created

4-Used kppp with this /dev/ttySL0 and guess what kppp responded well, it intialized modem but the whole thing stops there.And i am unable to get a connection.
kppp stays there forever with msg 'intializing modem'
I tried minicom , but stays at the "Dialing window" forever

I will install wvdial now ( i wish it was available in slackware)
and see if it works with it.

lspci gives : (Truncated)

I have been using Gnome Partition Editor for this with much success lately. Very nice livecd and I have lost no data.

If your modem is an alsa device, it won't show on the lspci output. you can see it by using "aplay -l" command. there's also quite a bit of information about slmodemd on Gentoo wiki : http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_slmodem#Using_ALSA_drivers . Hope it will help
