I used dial-up with Linux for many years and really never had any problems that
other people had.
I suppose that the first thing that I did was to select a compatable phone card.
I know that many of the software phone cards had problems but I never used
one. Also, the modems that attached through an RS-232 (and I supppose USB port)
always seem to work better.
The last several distros I used had a GUI application to configure the network
to and including a telephone card.
Additionally, I have always used Texas Networking (Texas.Net) as my ISP so I
think that this might have been part of my "good luck".
