The FBSD 4.9 install system has drivers for most of the Nic cards
and modems in use today, so there is no need to recompile the kernel
unless you have some piece of hardware not covered by the GENERIC
kernel. If your usb phone modem is an winmodem it will not work with
FBSD period. Winmodem are manufactured specially for MS/Windows
systems. Install FBSD and when completed, halt your FBSD system and
then power off, plug in usb modem, and power on. Review the boot log
/var/run/dmesg.boot file looking for message that your modem was
found, if found use 'user ppp' to dial your isp and login for you to
gain internet access. If your usb modem is found as (unknown) you
are SOL, (sh_t out of luck). Get your self an real serial com port
external modem. They work with out any fuss. That's the easiest way
for an newbe.

Good luck friend.
