There shouldn't be anything to configure.  You attach the monitor cord
to the monitor jack in the LCD projector, and run a cable from the
monitor port on the back of the PC to the LCD, and you should be good to
go.  I don't know about Ubuntu, but I use LCD's in Windows XP regularly,
and there are no Windows settings that have to be added/modified.
Shouldn't be in Ubuntu, either.

Run wvdialconf to find your modem.  It outputs a lot of stuff you don't
need; the modem port if found will be listed at the end.  Man wvdialconf
for options and settings.
