Although most "winmodems" are not supported by Windows NT,
this one may work!  
If not, you'll need to purchase a non-winmodem modem,
such as the Cardinal Connecta X2 model 3440 internal modem.
I bought one for about $45 (US), and it's a "clone"
of a US Robotics Sportster, and works just as well,
and Cardinal's web-site has a free upgrade to V.90 protocol.

The document at: ftp://ftp.usr.com/usr/dl17/index
states:
+++
568301NT.EXE   671998  11-09-98  

Windows NT 4.0 Installation files for the
00568301 16 bit Winmodem   This will only
work on Windows NT 4.0, and the 00568301
16 bit WinModem.  Place a blank formatted
1.44 floppy in drive A;   Double click the
file in explorer and the file will self
extract to a 1.44 floppy in A:
Run Setup.exe from the newly created floppy disk.

Since I missed the fact that you have a Thinkpad,
I'll mention that Cardinal also makes an "external" version
of their "non-winmodem" modem,
which is probably cheaper than any new "internal" modem.

Any progress?

I wish to retract my recommendation of Cardinal modems,
due to the "Chapter 11" bankruptcy proceedings of its parent.
Cardinal's BBS-site, which is essential for upgrading to V.90 is "down",
and their technical-support telephone-line isn't being answered.

It's still a good modem, but the lack of "support" is worrisome.
