Smile using two modems with linux and windows

I have installed two modems on my computer hoping to use one modem with Windows (ME) and the other with Linux (KDE). 1st a little history about my computer: I have installed two hard drives with Windows/ME on one and Red Hat linux 8.0 (KDE) on the other. Windows works perfectly with the Win modem I have installed. The other modem (which is Linux compatiable) will not work correctly. Before I put Windows/Me back on my system it (the Linux compatiable modem) worked fine with Linux. When I sign-on to Windows/ME I can hear the Linux modem turn on then turn off while the Win modem continues and make a connection. How can I configure Linux to recongnize only the compatiable modem instead of both. After configuring PPP and attempting to dail out, I get a "Modem is busy error." I'm only guessing that Linux is attempting to dail with both modems like Windows.
