  See Web page and search
for winhsp to discover that your modem works with a PCTEL 1709 chipset.

  To find this page I used and searched for Zoltrix
winhsp , found a link to drivers.

  This modem is supported under Linux. Follow this link to find what you
need to do to make it work:

  On the other hand, see to
find information of one single type of US-Robotics ( = 3COM) winmodem that
is known to work under Linux.

  Conclusion: Your PCTEL based Zoltrix will work. 3COM is one of the worst
possible choice for a new modem.

  By the way: look up some dictionary to find what "pioneer" means.
