    modem help

    1. make sure your ISP is linux friendly - call them
    2. DSL is easiest
    3. for dialup - use an external serial hdwr modem(not USB - they are usually sftwr modems)-- they need no drivers and are faster and connect better than many PCI modems.
    4. More dificult is internal PCI modems - both hdwr and sftwr modems will need drivers -- be prepared to spend some time on this

    either way -- slower modem speeds give the best combination of speed AND stability.

    good luck
