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,
