How to use the internal modem of the Travelmate

What kind of modem have Travelmate250? I've a 251XC_DT, that is 250 serie. We can know the data with the windows hardware administrator or whith linux using:lspci -vv

Looking for a little (or you can use grep) we find our modem and a lot of data:

00:1f.6 Modem: Intel Corp. 82801DB AC'97 Modem Controller (rev 03) (prog-if 00 [Generic]) Subsystem: Acer Incorporated [ALI]: Unknown device 0038 Control: I/O+ Mem- BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B- Status: Cap+ 66Mhz- UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium ...

I looked for in google to find something (I think I found it better looking for data maker in hexa whith lspci -vv -n where I got 0x8086:0x24c6 numbers. At the end I saw the better I can do was looking for: slmdm-2.7.10 package, the only thing you have to do is read the README and that's all, its very clear and very easy follow the instructions.
