>Are there any USB 56k modems that support Linux natively? If so, any suggestions 
on which I should get?
Depending on what Linux distribution you use, a hardware modem (uP based ) is your 
best bet, unless you have unlimited time and don't get frustrated.

Since you specify USB, I believe a USR5637 is hardware based and will do the job.

You might check Ebay for a used one, Tiger Direct sells the USR5637 for $49.99
