Ok, I have a AVM Fritzkard, donnow if that's what you have.

First compile your Kernel with ISDN:

    <M> ISDN support                                                     
    [*] Support synchronous PPP

    <M> ICN 2B and 4B support                                            
    <M> isdnloop support                                                 
    <M> PCBIT-D support                                                  
    <M> HiSax SiemensChipSet driver support                              
    [*] HiSax Support for EURO/DSS1

    [*] HiSax Support for german 1TR6                                    
    [*] HiSax Support for AVM A1 (Fritz)                                 
    <?> AVM-B1 with CAPI2.0 support                                      
The first depend also on whatever your ISP suports. (I think :)

The next is to write a file in /etc/modutils with this line in it:

options hisax type=5 protocol=2 io=0x6100 irq=11

See also /usr/src/linux/Documentation/isdn/README.HiSax

Then change /etc/isdn/* to fit your needs. (It'll be handy to have some
informations from your ISP about protocolls and stuff)

Hope that'll work :)

You should also consider installing isdnutils :-)
