hi friend,
Firstly, you have to figure which dialup modem you have, so that we can advise how to configure it. Unfortunately, a great deal of modern modems, known as 'winmodems', work poorly on linux, or not at all.
There are two resources on modems that you might want to be aware of:

- Read the 'rationale' part, and run the scanmodem tool, a lot of info will come out of it.

- the hcl (hw compatibility list) from linuxquestions. This is Maybe someone has already succeeded.

Regarding win drives, how are they connected to the machine and which filesystems do you have installed?
