If you upgrade to winXP or win2000 and your generic modem doesn't work, if bios recognizes the modem as "Simple.COMM" controller, then this is the driver you'll need.
This is actually a driver for an intel chipset, and it took me a long time to find--performing all kinds of net searches. I finally figured out that the main comm chip was intel and I got these drivers. Hope they work for you! They work great for me!
