    well..i have this problem with my modem. its an internal U.S. Robotics 56K Voice Win Int and it works fine with XP..it just that back then when i was using Win98SE, i was able to install the driver for that modem. That driver somehow had a special function to it. Everytime i'm online, and if someone calls in, it gave me a notification that i have an incoming and ask if i want to answer it. But now after i install XP, it doesn't let me use that driver for my modem. I was wondering if there a way i can bypass XP and trick it to use my modem driver instead of using XP's driver. I've check with USR's website, there's no update/fix for it.
    I've also tried installing it manually in Device manager but doesn't let me install it..

    Unless the driver was written for NT/XP...there's little to no chance of getting it to work XP is a completely different kernel when it comes to drivers and such since it is the NT kernel, goto usr's site and see if they have a 2k driver and try that

    if all else fails there are a few programs out there that offer the same ability.

    don't know if its driver specific but the option to turn on/off what you said is in the modem properties, at least it is on mine (I have two, internal and external and its in both).
    Could be in ISP properties actually, not on XP at the mo, so can't check
