I have a Diamond Supra Express SP modem (isa card) and it is definitely not
a winmodem. I believe that there is a winmodem version of this (Supra
Express Pro?). Once I set the jumpers on it (for COM2 IRQ 3 in my case), the
OS recognized the modem and all I had to do was check the correct com port
in linux (ttyS1 ) luckily I have two modems on my system as with the jumpers
set, Windows won't recognize the card. I haven't yet tried isapnotools yet
to see if I can configure the card as a plug-and-play.
