If you have the kernel source handy, you could try it out:

1. Edit sys/dev/isapnp/isapnpdevs, and add an entry for it:
  devlogic        com      GVC000F     0     GVC 33600 bps Fax Modem
2. In sys/dev/isapnp, run 'make -f Makefile.isapnpdevs'
3. Rebuild your kernel with the 'com at isapnp' driver.
4. Cross your fingers:) The device should attach.
