Question Detecting modem


Help!!!!!!!!!

I've just installed FC3 last weekend on my laptop. I'm prety new in regards to connecting linux to the internet. I've got dome few questions in regards to this:

1 How can I find out if the installation detect my internal modem?
2 If it did detect it during the install how can I configure it to work?
3 I've got an AOL account using windows, is it possible for me to use it to connect to the net using FC3?

That's all for this time and hope some can help me.

Thanks about the xmms, in regards to mplayer which one should I be insstalling, is it the mplayer-common or just the mplayer?

In regards to the modem I will post it later cause I'm still downloading the xmms and the mplayer(both) rpm

Querying the modem using KPPP modem device /dev/modem, from ATI up to ATI 7 gave me blank, Should it be like that
