    for the modem I'd bet it is a winmodem..
    that is always a problem in linux..
    hope this helps: http://www.google.com/linux?q=winmod...orola+mandrake

    Linux realy only has support for external (serial and USB(new modems)) modems.

    for the scanner look at SANE http://www.mostang.com/sane/
    best experience with SCSI scanners though.. Parrallel port scanners are harder to set up..
    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI.

    look here for device drivers for your modem www.linmodems.org if the device drivers are not there the only other thing i could sugest is an external modem. is it recognizing your modem as a win modem ? or not recognizing it at all?
