Plug them into computer one by one. See if PC recognises it. Load the necessary driver (if in Winblow$). Open Hyperterminal (if using Winblow$) and set it up to apropriate COM port. Type: AT in the terminal window and press ENTER. If the modem is ok it should respond with: OK. Then you can try with ATDT1234567890, press ENTER and you should hear it dialing.
You can use them to connect two computers directly.

Doesn't matter. Win98 should "see" that there is modem plugged in and ask for driver. As per drivers, you can see what's written on main modem chip and seartch for driver via google or go to driverzone.com and then search for appropriate driver or use FCC ID: from the modem to do the search at the same site.
