OK.  Serial stuff.

I've never had a PCI modem, only ISA internal and external modems.

Do PCI modems show up in dmesg with what ttyS? they've been assigned?

check dmesg and see what it says.

Do you have a manual for this modem to tell you what serial parameters
are default?

Install minicom so that you can try talking to the modem.  Read the man

You may need to intstall setserial so that you can set up the serial
port presented by the modem.
