Of all the places I would hope people wouldn't be stuck with only the

VMware running a real OS, presenting the winmodem as an ordinary serial
port (of whatever type it deos for serial ports)?
I know someone who does that for, IIRC, video - his laptop's video (or
whatever it is) isn't understood by his OS of choice (a Unix variant,
don't recall which one), so he runs Windows and VMware, with *nothing*
else running directly under Windows; everything "real" runs on the
VMware emulated machine.
