no because you cannot bridge a modem. besides the bandwith of a phone cord isnt very high

highly doubt it. dial up modems were not ment to be part of a network. the only use of old network cards were to network the pcs to the several machines with a permanant dial up connection. making a very slow but always on internet like DSL or Cable for bussniess.
