That is a question which is very difficult to answer.  If he's had the
modem for a year, and if the modem is not a WinModem (yes, you can get
PCMCIA WinModems), then most likely, yes.  But that is no guarantee.

I would recommend a search on www.google.com with keywords: pcmcia modem
linux <modem manufacturer> <modem model number>

to find out if that modem will work.
