Even some of the "winmodems" have Linux support so it's worth checking
the chipset to see if it is supported. I've had good luck with some of
the Zoom PCI modems too .. they make quite a few hardware modems, but
some of them are softmodems so you need to check the chipset.  Might
have on sitting around here somewhere ..

> Hi Ernest..thanks for your help but I know after trying 4 PCI modems and doing a lot of research, they will not work.  Even the ones that say Linux won't.  I was told to get a serial modem.  I see that PCI modems and dial up modems in general are causing people trying to use Ubuntu a lot of grief.  Most articles I've read say dial up is not really supported technically, although experts may be able to get it to work.  I have tried many chipsets w/o success..so now I am looking foir a serial modem.
