OK Guys, I know you are all groaning as you've seen this one so many times before.....
New Hard Drive in old PC.
Build from scratch.
Windows 2000 Professional.
All installations done.
All critical updates & software realeases done.
After hassle, found drivers for graphics card. Done.

Just one thing left. THE MODEM
I've never seen a PC like this one, it has a separate small socket at the bottom of the mother board - after the usual PCI slots - with a modem card plugged into it.
This slot is 19 pins + 11 pins unlike a PCI which is 49 + 11
The PC motherboard is I think an AWRDACPI

Whenever this modem is plugged in, it is detected as unknown "PCI Simple Communications Controller"
And resides on PCI bus 0, device 7, function 6

The card has no defining marks that I can find. The only lettering on it is as follows:
and on the reverse:

Can anyone help with this one?
