What type of modem is it? - to make a connection in Fedora Core you can use:

System tools
Internet configuration wizard

Follow it through adding your ISP details etc etc...

And then to actually connect - use:

System tools
Network device control

and simply activate the device by clicking on it then click "Activate"

re complexity - it can depend on the type of modem - there's support for some Winmodems, external serial modems are supported as are ethernet "modem/routers"
