    Alan, may be you are right but ...

    I have just bought a Toshiba laptop and it have an internal modem. It's a
    winmodem so I have this piece of hardware soldered somewhere on my
    laptop's motherboard and I don't use it. It's there doing absolutely
    nothing. Of course I will buy a decent PCMCIA Lan+Modem card (I've heard
    the xircom one is very good) but if someone will make a winmodem working
    team I will be more that happy to join the team and help.

    ... I don't see any reason for discouraging people working on a winmodem
    driver.

    Ciao,
    Riccardo.
