Fedora doesn´t find modem

I just installed FC4 on a six years old comp and I can´t get the dial-up modem (*s) to work. I have one internal and one external, but it doesn´t find any of them.... I´m using some druid under KDE.
it says "error 2".

The internal modem may not work if its a Windows software modem. What type of modem is the external one? Most serial modems should work fine in Linux.

Maybe you can find the proprietary driver of your modem which cannot be included in your distro here:
