talks to the pci modem card), I wasn't able to do much with that.

If, as you say, it's a real modem, it should show up as an ordinary serial device, which would be /dev/ttyS<n>. Standard serial port devices are /dev/ttyS0 through /dev/ttyS3. Any PCI cards that add additional serial devices would probably come up as /dev/ttyS4, and so on.

Also, check the kernel boot messages, with dmesg, for any reference to your modem card.
