I guess you are fucked up:

I own an Acer laptop with a Lucent AMR winmodem, and never got it working. If yours is also AMR, then forget about it.

Question: Is it shared with the sound card ?
I mean, when you installed Windows on the laptop (I'm sure you did), and after installing the sound card, did it appear the modem ( or viceversa) ?

If so, you are out of luck.
