Not true. GVC's Canadian site (http://www.gvc.ca/products/) lists
three types of 56K PCI modems available from GVC:
1) A PCI Internal V.90 w/Kflex with Controller modem
(onboard MCU, DPU and DAA) which can be installed in
WinNT, Win98, Win95, *and* Win3.1
2) A PCI Internal V.90 w/Kflex Controller-less modem
(onboard DPU and DAA; no MCU) which can be installed in
WinNT, Win98, and Win95, and
3) A PCI Internal V.90 Only Software modem (onboard DAA;
DPU in software) which can be installed in Win98, and Win95
