Soft modem and Radeon 9100 installation

While I have some experience (10 or so years) with DOS and windows. I don't have any idea when it comes to linux. I have just installed Mandrake on my computer. I also have windows 98 and xp on the computer triple booting but I doubt this will cause any problems?

Celeron 1700
512 mb ddr 333
cheapy motherboard
40gb cheapy hdd
LG 48x24x48 cdrom
Radeon 9100 ddr 128mb graphics
Cheap TV Card

Linux distribution** Mandrake Linux release 9.0 dolphin for i586
Linux kernal*** 2.4.19-16mdk
Modem*** Creative Modem Blaster V.92 DI5732

I would really like to get my win modem to work in linux as this is the only thing (lack of INTERNET access) really stopping me from using it more.

The other thing I would like to know is how I go about installing a driver for my graphics card as although it works fine it is using a generic driver and the 3d graphics games run really crap.

Please give tell me if you need any more info and how I should get this info!

Any help will be very much appreciated!
