Any external modem is compatible. Because it's hardware. Any internal ISA modem is compatible. Because it's hardware. Some select internal PCI modems are compatible(high end USRobotics). Because they are hardware.

Cheap 10 dollar winmodems need windows .dll's and your cpu to actually translate the data which the modem is supposed to do. Some of these modems are compatible- most are not. Check for a list of drivers and what is and isn't going to work.
