This reply has led me to some success.  I'll post again later when I
have a more complete answer.  Keep in mind that Xandros Linux always
worked with all of my serial modems.  Their non kppp handling of
dialup is pretty robust since it also recognizes many Winmodems. 
Anyway, I checked my DIP switches and found that AT was properly set,
which I expected.  After doing this I thought I would try my newest
3Com modem because some of the info printed on the bottom of the case
was different.  I'm currently signed on using Mandriva/kppp.  Yipee! 
As soon as I find out why this worked and the other modem didn't I'll
let everyone know.  I suspect that because Xasndros is an older
distro, and it is pretty robust, it allowed for circumstances with my
older modem that kppp isn't handling.  I don't htink this is good,
but maybe it will direct us to a fix so that things do work.
