I know of at least 3 Sangoma 508 boards running at 64Kb frame-relay,
and about to install one in my home machine soon. Their web site
(http://www.sangoma.com) shows relatively new boards with CSU/DSU
included, but I was worried that the standards here in Israel possibly
being a little different and so it is risky to get this part
integrated - you might want to check the service in your area before
BTW, Sangoma are the people who donated (and apparently still
maintain) the WAN support to Linux.
(Debian related - two of the three running cards (and my home machine)
use it under Debian "bo" release, the other one runs RedHat).
Hope this helps,
