modem installation

with two modems and two PC's, cannot get any combination to attach to ports 1 or 2.
they will only attach to ports 3 or 5 !
What am I doing wrong ?

Many thanks, but did not add that Win 98 cannot find a modem, so am still struggling.

when you say that win98 cannot find a modem what exactly do you mean?, is it windows 98?, after adding a new modem in the older operating systems you will have to change the dial up networking properties for the connection you are using, my computer, dial up networking, right click the icon and select properties (windows tells you the modem is not present) when the properties page appears change the modem to the correct one in the list, also delete the old modem from control panel, modems.
