(almost) all isdn cards are fully supported (dialin/out/back/... everything is
possible). There is no difference at all between local and remote access (but
remote access will be "slightly" slower of course).

Nothing at all, except maybe you have to pay for some of the advanced database
programs (but I can't tell you more about that; besides you will have to pay
the original authors and not Debian).
Basically, if you're new to Linux, just buy a set of CDs and play around with
it. All programs that can be distributed and used for free are on the CDs,
this includes everything mentioned above. The database programs you have to
pay for are not on the CDs, but you can download these from the Debian FTP
