98 compatibility with modem

I purchased a refurbished machine with nothing on it plus a 98 cd. I've added a hard drive and a modem and I have a couple of problems.
1. 98 is not recognizing the PCI internal modem I purchased.
2. Given this compatibility problem I don't know what to do re a graphics card.
3. I just want to end up with a simple home use system. I don't need the server capabilities.

Should I be using windows 2000? Will that solve my compatibility issues?
What graphics card is recommended?
How/where do I get a manual for the prosignia?
What other issues have I not even thought of yet?

Re: 98 compatibility with modem

Check with the maker of the modem for a Win98 driver... 98 does not necessarily contain drivers for everything. Otherwise, beware that we don't really support Win98 on our servers (no Compaq drivers available).
