You are talking about a winmodem here. Have you considered a
peripheral/PCMCIA modem, which would save you a lot of hassle? Also, next
time you buy a laptop, ensure it is Linux-compatible. Put the horses before
the wagon. I am not suggesting that it's impossible to correct your issue
as-is, but I would recommend that you use your time more wisely and opt for
the right hardware. PCMCIA modems, as opposed to winmodems, are widely- and
well-supported by the Linnux kernel.

Sorry I could not offer a better answer. I tried.

Best wishes,
