Winmodem drivers for 9.1


I currently run Mandrake 9.1 on a Dell laptop with a Lucent winmodem. I get my winmodem drivers from Germany as rpms and they have always worked. I am about to try out Slackware 9.1 and wonder if anyone could tell me first whether the equivalent tar.gz drivers (for the relevant kernel) are known to work.
