I want to make the leap to linux (specifically Redhat 7.2) but I'm pretty sure my modem isn't gonna work with it. Can anyone recommend a good modem that I should get? Is an external modem a good bet? Also what about cable/adsl modems, as I think pretty soon in the future I'm going to go for broadband, what are people's experience with getting these to work?
thanks a lot,

ANY EXTERNAL, serial port (not usb) modem
OR a ISA internal modem

thanks guys. I did install RH before- but unfortunately it didn't detect my modem (it's a US Robotics internal PCI- which after a bit of research I've found that linux seems to have a bit of a problem with these). I was thinking about a 3COM external- just have to have a bit of a snoop around on ebay, but is USB definitely a no-no? I thought support for USB was pretty good these days- It did manage to detect my optical USB microsoft mouse after all....

USB works pretty well these days.
new kernels support most major usb devices..
I myselve have used a USB ISDN modem with Slackware 8.1 a couple of weeks ago..
no problems what so ever..
