Well, if you can afford it and you´re aware that configuring a 
PCI-ISDN-adapter is more difficult than an analog external modem, I 
suggest buying an external ISDN-TA. I have my Zyxel Omni TA 128 for 3
years now (and it was in use by $formeremployer for dialin-services 
for years before that) and never ever had a single problem. The thing 
also has the advantage of having 2 serial ports, the second one you can 
use with the built-in ISDN-analyzer to grab nice things (like stats) 
out of the TA and to configure the thingie on-the-fly (eg for 
distributing calls for an MSN to one of the analog ports).


just my 2 cents,
