That is not a "hardware modem".

You are in for a real treat. Google "Linmodem" or "Winmodem". Use to look that up.

Also check with your motherboard manufacturer and via technologies websites for linux drivers. I hear that it is a lot easier to make them work now.

Also check with the Mandrake website to see if they have them.
