My modem is an Actiotec MDC AC'97 Modem v2132D. How can I be sure that it's a software or a hardware one? How can I be sure that it works with/is recognizable by my OS?
I'm using Debian Linux 5.0 with KDE.

You can start by reading over at linmodems.org. They have a script available over there, scanModem, that when run provides information about the chipset on the modem found, as well as possible links to resources that will help you in setting up a driver for your modem.
