Excellent!  Do you have a model #?  All the internal sportsters we carry are
Winmodems, and it would be excellent to have another alternative, what with
most new motherboards (like the Intel CA810AL) lacking ISA slots completely.

USR makes some 56k PCI modems.  Just like ISA ones, but no jumpers.
They just take the next available com port.

Plus the Winmodems won't work under anything but Windows - and barely at
that.  I can get the PCI modems to work under NT, OS/2 or Linux.
