(?) Why Winmodems Don't Work Under Linux, Yet!

From Chuck Winters on Thu, 23 Sep 1999

What is the difference between a winmodem and a regular modem and why will it not work on a Linux box. I have been looking all over for this information, and I can't find it. All I can find is that a Winmodem doesn't work on a Linux box. Could you also put up some reference links to some reading material on the web. Thanks.

Also look at my recent rants on the topic using the Linux Gazette search engine (WebGlimpse) (http://www.linuxgazette.com/search.html).
