Well, you could try some intensive Googling. I had a quick look and turned up
http://www.devidal.tv/~chris/winmodems/. This has a lot of useful
detailed charts about modem types available and general background about the
whole Winmodem problem. (Cheaper, basically by missing out hardware and
getting your cpu to do the work.)
I couldn't immediately see anything relevant for your modem though.
So on balance, it may be cheaper and easier to buy something that is supported
under linux for sure... Sorry about that.
