I have a USR model no. 5605 - 56k# Voice Faxmodem Pro that you can have 
for a bottle of Dos XXX amber.

> 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.
