Do you know what type of internal modem it is? Harddrake should say the name of it somewhere when you click on it.
Almost all internal modems sold in the last few years are "winmodems".
Basically, most only work with the manufacturer's software, which usually only runs on Windows.

So, unless you have a pretty old internal modem, you might be out of luck. If you could find out the model name of the modem, that would help us figure it out, though.
