There are lots of different programming languages that you can use in Linux. C and C++ are among the most widely used and supported; you could also check out Python, Perl, Java, Ruby, Tcl/Tk, or any number of others. It all sort of depends on what you want to do with programming.

the closest thing that i've read about was phoenix from janus-software. but i looks like they are no more. you could try kbasic -> http://www.kbasic.org/1/home.php3

but if you really want something point and click like VB, get something like borland's jbuilder. just my opinion.

you can check here for winmodem support. http://www.linmodems.org/
as far as modems go, i don't use dial up so i don't know. i heard though if you get an external hardware modem, you should have no problem getting it to work in linux.

what modem are you currently running? there's more than text files there, like drivers.
