Good 56k USB Modem

I know that serial modems are kinda guaranteed to work in Linux, but a USB modem would be more convienient for me. Are there any USB modems which you found to work well? How should I configure a USB modem? I'm looking at the Zoom 3090. Is that a good one?

This site should help

One thing to keep in mind is that the Linux kernel 2.6 will have much more USB support. It's not stable enough to recommend now. But should be available soon..
