Configuring / Plugging a usb modem to Slax...

Hello.
Ok. I'm pretty new at this. So again, bear with me...
I have a laptop with a faulty HD. I'm running Slax on a LiveCd.
I'm trying to install a usb modem but of course, something isn't working...
So, basically there are a couple of questions here...
1) Can it be done? Considering that it's running from the CD...
2) I'm assuming that I have to "mount" the usb modem but I don't have the slightest clue either where or how.
3) Although I just found out that the system already recognized the usb device (through KinfoCenter - USB Devices) still, I don't know how to enable it...
Thanx.
