well u may upgarde your ram to 1 or 1.5 GB if less ... and try installing Windows 7 on your computer i can tell you how to download or if you already have ... then the speed will not bother you any more...
Check the basics...RJ11 connected to pc, username and password reentered, restore IE settings in internet options. Check dialup number is correct and that dialup modem has no issues in the pcs device manager. Not much more can go wrong with dial up as it's such a simple service.
Disconnect external peripherials except keyboard and mouse .Disconnect the power cable.Hold the power button for 10 seconds to drain flea power.Reconnect the power cable and turn on the computer When the blue DELL™ logo appears, press immediately. In bios there is option for Function key F9 or F10 probably to reset to defaults.SAve and exit and restart the system .Then try to use the PC restore feature on dell. check http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim1100/en/SM/syssetup.htm#wp1055545
I suspect your existing dialup modem is in an existing PCI Slot on your motherboard, remove the existing dialup modem and "snap" your new one in it's place.
Use the software that came with it to get the correct drivers to work on it, (though I do believe XP and Vista will install without special drivers), but having the correct one for the modem you put in will insure it's working properly.
Both of you could try going to control panel/add new hardware and follow it through. Most likely the second HD is still raw - not formatted -hence doesn't show because as far as windows is concerned it isn't there.
