Hi Bill,
if the driver on the CD doesn't specifically say it's a Linux Driver, 
you can't install
it without using an extremely large Hammer. :-) .  Windows software will 
not install on Ext3.

Easier to get an external Serial modem,  be careful of external USB 
modems, most
are "Win modems" software driven.  I have a USRobotics usr 5637 usb that 
just plugs in and works.
Set up dial up connection to  ttyACM0 and all works.
Hope this helps.
Take Care
