Check isdn4bsd - it runs on NetBSD 1.3.1/i386 and NetBSD-current i386 and 
atari. It supports DSS1 with many passive cards based on the Siemens
chipset, i.e. Teles S0 series, AVM A1 & Fritz!, Creatix S0, USR Sportster
TA intern, Dr. Neuhaus Niccy @GO, .... (if you don't have a card yet, go
for the USR or Niccy @GO - they were the only companies giving enough
information to write a device driver; I myself prefer the USR, the @GO
is PNP, which I generally avoid).

You can get isdn4bsd from (login as user isdn4bsd).
