In my past experience, if you install wvdial it works for many circumstances,
the "auto detect your modem" feature offered by wvdialconf is extremely

If you have an LTmodem (as one model I was playing with did) then the 
auto detect will work, once you have the ltmodem module properly loaded.
In our setup it decided it was ttyS14 and I had to create the /dev/modem
symlink pointing to that in order to make other things happy.

See linmodems.org for more details that you really wanted to know :)
To cut it down to the laptop typical stuff - lucent released binary 
drivers which were crummy, the open world is working on our own.  IBM
is fully supporting a project (*with* source) that gets their Mwave 
softmodems working, but many thinkpads either have normal modems or none.

Look out for finding pcmcia modems that turn out to be winmodems too :(
