If your intention is to try to install the Windows drivers for your modem in Wine, that won't work. Windows hardware drivers do not work in Wine. 

You need to get your modem working in Linux. Ubuntu does have instructions for that in their wiki, http://help.ubuntu.com/community/DialupModemHowto. For help following the instructions, ask on the Ubuntu forum; it's not a Wine question.
