The most important thing I think is, that the modem is an external one
with hardware-correction. Beware of "soft-modems", because they would
I am running an Intel 486-50 with obviously the Linux os. Is it
impossible to configure a "win" modem to handle dial up scripts in
Linux? Also, modems that claim windows is required to operate...Is this

Any advice on modems would be appreciated.
