Take a look at Apple's developer docs for your particular mac.  I think
you might be out of luck though - I just had a quick look at the Xserve
developer PDF and it's slots are 2.1 (this is the G$ Xserve).

I think only the newer software based modems from conexant are not well
supported.  In the old G3s, that should still be a good ol' hardware
modem, and should show up as a serial port (/dev/ttyS[0-4]).
