Can Ubuntu handle winmodems?

I wound up downloading the latest drivers from and compiling
them myself.  There was one error message that popped up, but the resulting
driver worked for me with no issues.  I think the current version of the
driver is ltmodem-8.31b1.tar.gz.  Actually, just checking the above website,
there is an alternative driver available... martian.tar.gz.  I'll have to
give this a try this weekend to see how well it compiles.
