First, check the documentation - driver installation is likely to be different for each device you install. RTFM!

That being said, generally, .o files go in /lib/modules and .so files go in /lib or /usr/lib. Use insmod to install the modules.
Check out /usr/doc/HOWTO/Kernel-HOWTO for more info on modules.

Winmodems are cpu driven buy a better modem this one will slow your linux box down.

Typically the .so files go in /lib, and the
.o files go in /lib/modules...

however, winmodems are 99.9% sure to not
work. Even the ones that I have had
"drivers" for haven't worked correctly. I
recommend that you purchase an external modem(US Robotics, etc). Even though it's
external, you won't nowhere near the trouble.
If you want an internal, find a US Robotics
56K Sportster (one of the ISA ones) if you
cna use it... It at least works.

Winmodems do not work on any distribution of
linux. Your best bet is to replace it with
another modem.
