I didn't think it was but you maybe right. I read that a great many 
conextant modems were compatible which is why I went with that modem. I 
will have to double check to make sure this one is hardware modem, can 
you tell by looking at the board?what would i look for? Would 
ndiswrapper give me all the functionality i need here? I have a somewhat 
large collection of internal modems at my disposal. Does anyone know of 
an internal modem that is compatible with linux? It doesn't have to be 
red hat based linux , though that is my preference. I appreciate the help.
