Who cares about the vendor. Best example: Lucent's 802.11b wireless cards, now marketed as Orinoco, don't mention Linux anywhere, and will shake their head and scold you if you deign to bother their tech support about it. Its easily the best supported wireless card under linux.
I also thought my software modem, or Winmodem as they are sometimes called, was a no-go with Linux until I found out recently that not only was there drivers, put out by the vendor(?), but that they were providing them as Source! instead of pre-compiled modules which would have required me to downgrade kernels.
StarTAC has probably combed the web already, but you might want to try just plugging in the type of modem to: the source.
I'm still out of luck with my digital camera though
