Question Modem Detection

I am using Fedora Core2. I am planning to buy an external US Robotics modem in few days. My question is that when I plug my modem with my PC, does FC2 detect it atomatically or I have to do something special?

I don't know about Fedora, but if it isnt auto-detected you could try the pppconf-program to determine your modem and configure your dial-up-connection. also the program minicom should work to detect your modem, but it does no configuration. The dial-up-tool wvdial is able to detect your modem, too. depends a bit on the program you use to dial-up

If it's an external serial modem then you should be ok - you can set it up via:

System tools
Internet configuration wizard

Pick the type of modem then follow the wizard through.
