	It shows up as :
		puc0 at pci0 dev 11 function 0 "AT&T/Lucent Venus Modem" rev 0x00: com
		pccom3 at puc0 port 0 irq 9L ns16550a, 16 byte fifo
which translates to cua03 under OpenBSD.  So, from what you say, I'm guessing
that the modem will work with no problems.  Now to order the NetBSD and try
it.  I'll let you know what I find out when I get NetBSD installed.
Thank you for the reply.
