External 56k Modem
I'm getting ready to switch from Windows XP to Mandrake Linux 10.1.
Where I live I can only get 56k internet and all I own is a winmodem.
I've read around the net that Serial external 56k modems work the best with linux.
I've found one that looks good, it's a "Best Data 56SX-92 56K V.92 External Data/Fax Modem"
Before I actually switch to Linux, I want to make sure this one will work and if so how easy is it to get working?
Also price is an issue, the one above I can get for $16.99 online (that's why I'm looking into it)
P.S. I am a Linux noob.
