Toshiba Satellite PRO 4300 Modem drivers..

Hello everibody!Yesterday I downloaded KNOPPIX 3.7 (and for the first time I tried a not-microsoft OS), and I'm very happy with it.. I still have to learn 99% on how to use it but it's not a problem..
the problem is, I can't get the modem work! My laptop has an internal Lucent technologies modem, but I can't find a driver to have it work... may you help me? Maybe with a step by step help in case of "command line" installation is required? Thanks a lot to anyone who would help me!

you will need the ltmodem driver (
i doubt it comes with knoppix. as knoppix is a live cd, you would
probable have to load the driver manually each time you boot.
