PCI modems or winmodems and USB modems can be very difficult to detect and install for Linux. I am busy playing with Debian Linux at present and got an external modem for the same price as a pci 2 weeks ago fromhere and have no problems and it is much faster than the pci.

Yeah, if it's a "Winmodem" i'd just go buy an actual hardware modem rather than hoping to get lucky with the winmodem. Winmodems hardly have any processing on the modem itself, it's all run from Windows drivers & depend on the CPU/OS.
