I would put serious money that they're Winmodems.....Toshiba seems to drive
their stuff on the Thinkpad model (similar design, IBM office software
rather than MS, etc.), and they certainly use Winmodems....

Hawking makes a nice PCMCIA combined modem/ethernet card that is expressly
designed to cheerfully work on Windows, Linux and Mac, all three....which is
what I ended up buying when I kicked the Toshiba into Linux.
