    It depends - US Robotics makes several different modems. Is it a hardware modem or a software modem? If it's hardware, you don't need anything for it. However, if it's software, you may or may not be able to get it to work with Linux. Go to www.linmodems.org and see if your modem is listed there.
    Do what you want with the girl, but leave me alone!

    Internal or external?
    If the modem is external the odds are that you will need nothing.

    www.linmodems.org

    the page is old but the links are good

    3COM USR 56k V90 "hardware modems" come in ISA, PCI, and EXT versions, my son has used them all in several versions of *nix, and Solaris 8. He has never had a problem with any of them, my experience has it hands down these are the best modems. I will not buy anything else.
    I have a question; are you the bug, or the windshield?
