CardBus 32-bit - any drivers?

I don't know if it qualifies as a Cardbus PCMCIA device, but I've got an
(old, by now) Hayes Optima 33.6 data/fax PCMCIA modem working under
Redhat Linux 6.0 on my Thinkpad 770X.  Doesn't "Cardbus" refer to the
interface, and not the particular card?  If so, it appears to be working
on my system with the RH Linux 6.0 without any special steps.

Anyway, I used the OS/2 PCMCIA Director to enable/verify the card, then
rebooted to Linux, and it simply just works!
