I have never seen a PCI modem that wasn't a winmodem.
The fact that it says plug and play isn't really relevant.. all PCI is what
microsoft refers to as plug and play.. the actual PNP "spec" is only relevant
on ISA. (They also refer to monitors as PNP, which confuses the heck out of me)
NetBSD may detect your modem.. but I would be truly amazed if it wasn't a
winmodem and thus useless.
