 YES! Works great. Have one even retrofited on an RDI IPX.

 While SMCC uses a "modified" US Robotics card for their discontinued--
 The /etc/driver_aliases file should then be modified to include an entry
 (for the example modem card) as follows:
 pcser "PC,Intel MODEM 2400+ iNC110US A-0"
 After the driver_aliases file is modified and the system is rebooted, the
 card should be recognized.
 Look at /etc/remote to see which name in your version of the OS the direct
 PCMCIA is: pcmcia0, pc0 or ..
 Do a tip. Type AT, see OK and :-)
 Since we don't sell or support the US Robotics card I can't tell you what
 configuration entries in all the other places you will need---
 but it just like any other modem and you need to read the documentation to
 set the correct flow control,....
 Hope this helps,
