I've had the modem for to long to take back.
Re-install Windows...[[shivers]] That's gonna take a while. I don't have OEM recovery CD's for this Pc representing Win2k; or Win98. I copyied the I386 folder from my Win2k install on my laptop; also my dual boot of Win98, I copied the Options/Cabs folder, onto Cd-rom to make my OS install CD's. I hid the partitions that I wasn't using to install the OSes. For Win98; it still installed from a quick GUI interface, just by floppy-booting and typing Setup.exe at the command line. For Win2k, I floppy boot, then WINNT.EXE to do a install. This takes away from the quick install option...Win2k took forever to finish copying files!
Oh, well, there I go rambling. I did find one article that may explain why I 'm having so much trouble. If this is the case; I'm not sure if I want to go through any more crap with this thing just to find that it still doesn't work!
