ESS PCI modem problems under Fedora Core1

I've tried connecting to the Internet from Fedora Core 1 and Knoppix, and both cannot detect my modem under the default /dev/modem. I got the modem detecting at tty01-03, but under these i get the error message "modem appears busy". Now, i know linux doesn't generally like PCI modems, and i'd heard there was a way to connect to the net through Windows, but i don't know how to go about it.

I have a dualboot with Fedora Core 1 and Windows 2000 Professional SP3, and would like to be able to connect to the net through the linux partition (or Knoppix from CD). With the above problem, is there any ways to go about this?
