That's nice.  Asking three times isn't going to help you get help, but
will succeed in annoying (and thus alienating) people.  Asking once
and waiting 3-7 days before trying again with more detail will.
Please read ESR's guide to smart questions to help increase your odds
of a successful call for help.

Not sure if this is a winmodem or not...if it is, you're probably
SOL.  If not, it'll work as-is, no driver required.  Pretty much all
non-USB external modems are guaranteed to work with Linux out of the
box and even shitty external modems tend to perform better than most
internal modems and all winmodems.

fire up minicom, start trying ports.  Type at it, if you get a
response or see the RX and TX lights blink (oops, sorry, only works on
externals...) you've found the right port.  /dev/ttyS0 is COM1 in
MS-WinDOS terms, ttyS1 is COM2, etc.
