*any* external model with a serial port will be fine. USR are
usually quite good, and (used to be in my day) well respected in the ISP
world. That said : http://www.marxcomputers.ie have an external serial
modem for €40 which should do the job nicely. (They do claim the PCI one
is Linux compatible, but mention Intel/Ambient chipset, so YMMV)
Basic rule of thumb: if it's got a serial connection, odds are it's
hardware, the connection would be too slow for the PC to be doing DSP
