Reinstall RedHat and at the point you choose a modem, make VERY sure you pick the right thing.

Otherwise, it might be an unsupported WinModem.

Welcome to LQ.

Normally, if it is a genuine hardware internal modem, then Linux will see it as extra serial ports. I have two onboard serial ports, so listing /dev/ttyS* shows /dev/ttyS0 and /dev/ttyS1. If I were to have an internal hardware modem, then it would show up as eiter /dev/ttyS2 (COM3) or /dev/ttyS3 (COM4). If you know which port it should be on, then you could try specifing that when you run minicom or kppp.

Unfortunately, the majority of PCI modems (normal ones, not ham radio modems... that is what you're talking about?) are software modems which rely on (Windows) drivers doing all the hardwork and not actually needing as many components on the PCB... and as such they're called WinModems. If this is where you think you're at, then check out Linmodems.org and see if you can find your modem, and whether it's been OKd for use with Linux or not.

Good luck.

dear friend you have to know the CHIPSET of your modem. not the company of your modem.
and dont waste your time in configuring a pci modem through minicom. it will be good to find its driver. first unplug your modem and see the chipset and then search for your chipset drivers on linmodems.org.
i have also configured my PCI modem through its driver.
