First you'll need a driver which I assume one of the above suggested sites will help you out there. Then the modem will be mapped to a /dev/ttyXY device where X will usually be a letter and Y a number. Then it's a good idea to make a symlink called "modem" to ttyXY so that you always specify the destination as /dev/modem. Easy to remember. It's a good idea to get an app called minicom. It's an old style terminal program that good for testing modems.
