have a look at the HOWTO's, there's a serial howto and there might be a
modem howto or mini-howto.
if it's not a winmodem, then maybe it's isa Plug and Pray? (you weren't very
clear). So you might need to configure it first with the isapnptools, eg use
pnpdump to give you a commented out isapnp.conf file. Edit it to the
settings you want and run isapnp /path/to/isapnp.conf. (yes, PnP is a pain
in the hole).
then run setserial to configure the linux view of your modem, eg:
setserial /dev/tyySx irq z port 0x???
you should now be able to run a terminal like minicom on the serial port and
be able to give your modem commands.
