Rockwell are one of the most prolific modem chipset makers. Just about every
clone ISA modem uses rockwell. And there are loads of different rockwell
chips.. most just standard DTE's with AT command set, but there was also
RPI, (something like Rockwell Programming Interface), one of the first
'winmodem' chips (DSP based), (used in 14.4k era modems iirc).
If it was an ISA modem it'd be ok, but this one's PCI. . The Rockwell and
Lucent PCI chipsets are winmodems - not supported. AFAIK there's only one
'real' PCI modem chipset, some obscure one, which works with linux.
Get an ISA modem and ask 'Is it compatible with DOS?', if so it's compatible
with linux aswell.
