Hopefully your modem doesn't need a power reset, as mine does after my ISP
does this.  Try typing "echo atz > /dev/ttyS1" for com2.  Just change the
ttyS# to whatever port your modem is on.  

	ttyS0 - com1 ttyS1 - com2 ttyS2 - com3 ttyS3 - com4

The modules my still be in place.  Try just copying the kernel image from
floppy.  Check directory /lib/modules to see if they are there.
