Thanks for the e-mail responses!
I hate to keep posting my own replies here, but I have answered many of my own
questions. I think it important to post this information for others that may
have similar Gateway systems or hardware.
The soundcard is the Ensoniq Soundscape. This card is listed in the Sound
HOW-TO as a card that *IS* supported. There was no small print to be found. I
guess that means it will work native in Linux.
The modem I have had a more difficult time with. I guess I will have to wait
and see. The specs I found (on Gateways web site) do not give the indication
that a specialized windows only chip-set is used. It does say that it supports
3.1x and 95. I would think that it is a "real" modem since many of the so
called niceties of win95 would not be available under 3.1x. If all else fails
I'll just buy a "real" modem!
