I have an internal ISDN modem, which I installed about a year and a
half ago (maybe a bit longer). It's a USR Courier I-modem (128kb).
If your modem accepts standard AT commands, then it shouldn't be any
problem. Linux does support ISDN quite well, and it sees the modem as a
"standard" one, if it can accept the above mentioned commands.
If your modem uses something else, I don't have any idea, but since
it's not a winmodem, you *should* be able to get it up and running
without too much problems.
No special caveat's or gotcha's that I remember - just use it like it
was normal modem.
