It doesn't really matter what modem you use, as long as its not a WinModem.

I have heard this term before. What is a "WinModem"? What is the difference? Are ModemBlasters WinModems?

winmodems are the software interface between your computer and phone line, even though it is a peasce of hardware, the real modems for sure are external modems, and there is a handfull of internal real modems, they usually have jumpers on the board to allow you choose IRQ, etc.

You also may want to get an external modem, they pretty much will work with any version of linux. Plus u can switch it to another computer if need be!
