Exclamation modem is detached???

I was reading some of the posts here about peoples modems not being reconized. And they said check the /etc/sysconfig/hwconf file. so i did and this is what it says about my modem

class: MODEM
detached: 1
device: ttyS3
driver: ignore
desc: "Generic Serial Modem"

I'm pretty sure the 1 next to detached means a yes. and how did it become "detached" I tried unplugging it and rebooting, putting it back in and rebooting and hopefully it would find it again but that didn't work. Could I just edit the file and make that 1 a 0 then would it work? It is a ISA modem...what brand I'm not sure.

And another quick question I have a PCI modem installed in my computer also. Its the modem I use in Windows here's what the hwconf file says about it

class: MODEM
bus: PCI
detached: 0
driver: unknown
desc: "Conexant|HCF 56k Data/Fax Modem"
vendorId: 14f1
deviceId: 1033
subVendorId: 1092
subDeviceId: 0abe
pciType: 1

now could I download drivers for this modem and be able to get rid of the ISA modem? Any help would be greatly appreciated. TIA
