How do I use a WinModem with Linux?  I have been told it is all but impossible.  Is there absolutely no way to setup a WinModem to work under Linux?

It's not "all but impossible" -- it's impossible.  Sorry =)

I hate to say it, but xterm is right.  You see, with the winmodem, USRobotics took out the UART chip (that's the chip on your modem that lets it communicate with the com port) from your modem and replaced it with software.  That software was designed for use only under windows.
