Er, this is a Kubuntu list...  

However, Kubuntu might have no more luck than SuSE, as strictly the
installer was probably right - your system probably has what is called
a "softmodem", which means that it doesn't have a genuine modem and the
functionality is done in software.  Without some clue about what sort of
modem you have, even the SuSE support lists won't be able to help you.
