And another question... Modem won't install

I picked up some 400 MHz HP's from work (don't have the model handy) and I tried to install some Best Data 56K modem's on them and it won't install the driver. It won't find the hardware and when I select have disk and select the appropriate driver and click OK the window where it's supposed to show the .inf file goes blank and I can't go next. This is on a box running WinXP Pro.

I'm going to try swapping the slot that the modems are in but I find it kinda odd that neither detected. If I can find a good (non-fried) modem at home I'll try that. Oh... And I tried downloading the drivers from Best Data's website but they are the same driver's and the same thing happens. Help!

Yeah, I'd try a known working modem first. Sounds like you got a bunk one.
