installing modems

I am trying to help someone install a modem they have xp professional but have bought a modem with just xp on the box. Could this be the reason why the pc is not recognising the device.

have they followed the instructions for setting up the modem? Some usb ones for example have to have the software connected first and it then tells you to connect the modem.

XP on the box refers to both XP Home and Pro.

As howard64 suggests, if it's a USB modem then you only connect the modem when advised during the setup installation.

If you have the retail box then, presumably, you also have the manual?
