As for the internal modem:

all stands or falls depending on
vendor & make :)

What modem is it?

Let's try to tackle it from there...

Cheers,
Tink

ISA/PCI?
Can you somehow give us
the output of a few linux commands?

Like booting to linux,
entering the commands, copy files to
floppy and paste them here?
Have a FAT formatted floppy handy...
become root, then:

lsmod > ~/lsmod.txt 2>&1
lspci -vv > ~/lspci.txt 2>&1
mount /mnt/floppy
cp ~/l*.txt /mnt/floppy/

Cheers,
Tink

While there, give
/usr/doc/Linux-HOWTOs/Modem-HOWTO
a closer look :)
