I also have the same problem with a TDK "DF2814" modem/fax card.

Oh, very cool!
*sigh*. I'm away right now and probably won't sup and build until Saturday,
but it's nice to know this is getting looked at.
I wanted to share this with the list: The USB support in NetBSD is
dramatically superior to the USB support in Windows '98.
1. You can't use a new USB device on a Windows box without letting it "search
for new drivers" - painful if the new device is a keyboard or mouse.
2. On my laptop, my USB<->PS/2 adapter produces cripplingly bad performance
under Windows 98 - if it's connected, I get a visible frame rate of around 2-3
fps during some video games, even ones that really don't require anything like
full performance. (A benchmark suggested that I have a Celeron 53Mhz.)
Works great under NetBSD. Plug it in, and bam, keyboard and mouse work.
