Question call waiting programs?

I'm on a dial-up serial modem and would like to know if there are any programs that could detect if a call was coming in or trying to connect. I don't have call waiting and do not intend to have it. Is it possible to program something like this, if it does not already exist?

I know they exist. But, most are difficult to get running, and I don't know of any GUI frontends at all. I tried to find something to read the ICM protocol when I had dialup, but decided to share my puters with Windows ICS so I could use the software that was provided by the phone co. I did email the company about it and they replied quickly and in a friendly, open manner about it. But they were not gonna develop for Linux. They welcomed my efforts, though. Were willing to co-operate with any efforts I could do to make my own. Too bad I can't program....
