It will work, but I dont recommend it. Web excel suck :)
33.6 web excels are umm ok, but the 56k models have given us soo many
problems. Go for a 'name' brand such as banksia/netcomm/simplemodem/usrobotics/....

But to answer your question, it will work with linux (I myself have a web
excel 33.6 and it most certainly isnt a winmodem.) just I dont recommend
buying it if they can afford a better one.
