Help configuring USB dialup external modem

Ok, I have an Access Communications USB V.92 external modem
[model # ub1-1001-3101 part # OD-EMU-100 ]

and I was wondering how I could get it to run on Linux?[ Mepis 7.0]

I tried installing its dirvers though Wine but it still doesn't detect it when its plugged in...

I only need to use the modem when my DSL dies on me so I use it as a backup...

the pre-installed compaq modem no longer works so I have to use the external one...


also: does anyone know how to get Wine to install downloaded softwares from the net? I figured out how to run the ones on CD-Rom but I still don't know how to get it to run downloaded ones? all that loads is the Wine Configurations thing and when I enter it nothing happens.
