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.
