Modem Issue Again

Hi there,

I am having great difficulty getting my modem on my Inspiron going,
now I have found this excerpt:

'Starting with Linux 2.6.5 you can use the Smart Link Soft Modem (slmodem-2.9.7.tar.gz or newer) in ALSA mode (eg. slmodemd --alsa hw:0). Build the kernel with support for "Intel i8x0/MX440; AMD768/8111 modems" from the ALSA _sound_ section) and make sure you have the ALSA development libraries installed when compiling slmodem. '

Now to be honest since I am such a newb I have no idea what this means.
What's ALSA mode, how do i use it in that mode.
How do I build the kernel with support for etc.?
Is this out of my depth and should I just give up and go back to XP til I move house and am able to use ethernet rather than dialup?
