I have a Compaq Presario 1200 laptop, which has an internal 56k modem. However, when I try to add it from GNome, Programs,Internet,Dialup Configuration, the Autodetect for a modem comes up with a, /dev/ttyS0 baud rate 57600. but the "trying to connect" task yields an error "unable to initialize modem".

It might not be autodetecting it correctly. Might want to read the modem Howto's, try some of the steps there and do a manual configuration to get the modem working properly.
