Or you could "work up" to support more than one, since all expect
pretty much the same enivironment anyway. Each WinModem is likely to
want a common base so you first just focus on getting one single
brand of WinModem working. Once you've done that, you should only
have a few minor additions to make to support many others.

Feh, when I speak for myself, I'm merely a spectator here since I know
neither Windows or unix programming. But I do add my support for those
like you who do know enough to do something about it. Go for it! :)
