You can either get an ISDN external adapter, these then look like a
standard modem require feck all changes to anything and should work
reliably, or you can get an internal card, I've used the AVM B1 here at
work internally and once you get a stabalised ISDN snapshot, from the suse
ftp site it works a dream, the main problem is the ISDN ppl vs Linus fight
that is ongoing .....
So easy option and portable is the external adatper, but it will require a
serial port, and the other option is the internal, the AVM B1 we used is
old now but it did a lot of work on board, whereas the AVM A1 we also have
is processor heavyish ..
