>From another thread...these are both standard PCI modems, not Win modems - they
don't use Windoze(tm) drivers to operate, and they'll work in other o/s's that can
handle a PCI modem...any modem labeled with anything other than "Win 9x", such as
Netware or OS/2 is not a Winmodem.  Don't believe it if it says NT.  I fell for
that once.
