can't get my external modem to work

I just recieved an external modem (in windows it says it is an 'Ambient 56kbps external modem' connected to comm2 (i dual boot this computer)) and when i go to kppp i don't know how to set it up (then again i've never used linux before as this is my 'learner computer') i've done my connection settings but havn't got the modem to work so i can't connect to the net in linux. (the modem works fine in windows though)

Any help would be much appreciated.
