It is in fact addressed in FAQ of this group (thanks S.L.:)) ).
First, you have to identify what model of modem you have.
If it is Actiontec combo with modem based on Lucent chip, then go
to www.linmodems.org and there you will find a link to driver
The linmodems page provide also variety of links to sites explaining
installation process. It is to some extent distro-dependent, so I
will not dwell on that here. But, its pretty straightforward.
If you have bad luck and your comp is fitted with 3Com's combo, then
start looking for inexpensive PCMCIA modem, since there is basically
no chance to get it working (thou NIC is working), at least I haven't
heard of anybody who succeeded.
