If this is a serial modem then Fedora should automatically detect it on start-up (I've got a serial USR modem on the machine I'm posting from).

Fedora comes with two graphical utilities to make dial-up really easy:

System Tools > Internet Configuration Wizard
System Tools > Network Device Control (to activate/deactivate the modem)

'kppp' is neat, but I don't think that it's installed by default, and the Red Hat tools are just as good. 'wvdial' is a command-line utility.

Even if you use Windows, it's often good advice to copy the manuals off the CD and then throw it away - the supplied software is usually out of date and a newer version will be on the Web. Very few manufacturers provide Linux utilities or drivers, but most of the time everything that you need will be included in your Linux distribution anyway.
