I strongly suggest against buying a USB modem.
Serial modems are becoming rare (and more expensive), though generally
any of them can work with linux.
You may actually have some luck with PCMCIA modems.
Have a go at ebay or retailers.
Par example: http://www.peats.ie/cgi-bin/shop/db.cgi?view=1&id=386&type=5&path=14x139http://www.peats.ie/cgi-bin/shop/db.cgi?view=1&id=4903&type=6&path=14x139x386
- extortionate pricing though :)
