Don't care about the brand of the modem, but prohibit _any_ internal ones !
The reason is moderm modems are almost all softmodems, witch needs
proprietary (and commercial) drivers... Moreover, they use lot of
ressources on the computer !
With external serial modems, you are assured to get a good robust old-
school hardware modem that will work perfectly on any hardware and OS ;)
