Just make sure you don't get a "WinModem".  Those things are "junk".  

i.e. you're safe going with external anytime.  Also, BTW, I'm using many
USR Sportster 33.6 Ext. Faxmodems under mgetty.  They work great!!!! 
Terminal and PPP auto-sensing connections works like a charm and was really
easy to get going.  (Thanks to Tim Sailer and http://www.buoy.com/isp )
