No i'm afraid this website isn't going to help you.

I have a A31, and the modem with these models is a Lucent/Agere AMR 
Modem. As you can see and is written in the site, there is currently no 
Linux driver for these AMR modems. Simply put it, it won't work.

I bought my machine back in December, and at the time, I contacted both 
Lucent and IBM many times. Lucent thanked me for suggesting to make a 
Linux driver (Urgh!), and IBM told me that they are working on a 
driver. That was back in december, and so I guess they are still 
working on a driver !!!!

If you need a modem, go and by a real PCMCIA thing. That's your only 
choice for now (I did the same).
