No, it's a software modem, commonly called a "winmodem", but in this case, perhaps it's a MacModem? :)

Sorry.

I know that there are many drivers for Winmodems on x86 linux, such as the Lucent and Martian drivers. Is there any hope for such drivers for this modem at all?

Not really. It's pretty mac specific (communicates over the i2c bus like a sound card) and would basically require someone to write a binary Linux driver for it. I doubt it'll happen any time soon simply because it's a very niche product.

Sorry.
