since you still don't have any reply's here's my two cents: winmodems are crap, don't bother with them.
I used to have a conexant winmodem, struggled with the drivers for weeks, finally bought an external hardware modem, connected it and was ready to go! No drivers needed :-)

I agree - a serial modem will give better performance also. Though I'm now finally on DSL, for the coming years I plan to buy one of the new Devolo modems, which is a serial modem that connects to your box through ethernet.

Here is the page with the LTmodem drivers. Installing from source is easy. The driver you need depends on the kernel you're running. Many people have put alot of effort into developing this modem driver for linux and in contrast to the above posts it is a viable solution. As a motter of fact when you buy a computer preloaded with linux (Wal_Mart Linspire, TigerDirect Linspire, Dell preloaded with Linux) that is the modem that is used

LTmodem driver download

For the standard Slackware 2.4.31 kernel use ltmodem-8.31a.tar.gz. If you go with the 2.6.13 kernel there is a patched driver out there that you find by googling using "ltmodem" and "kernel 2.6" as search terms.

The modem runs as fast as any hardware modem since you are usually limited by line speed.
The modem also supports fax using efax-gtk.
