    Linux has limited support of so-called Winmodems.
    Post your hardware specs and I'll see If I can figure something out to help you.
    Boot into Suse, open terminal and run:
    lspci -v
    Copy the output and post it back here.
    I don't want you to get your hopes high - you may end up buying hardware modem (I assume you're on dial-up) - the best would be external modem, which is connected to serial port (i.e. COM1 or COM2) of your computer.
