I figure if I'm going to run both Linux and XP Home that I'm better off with an external modem. I don't have an ISA slot in my newest machine. Is my assumption correct?... and any recommendations for a moderately priced external modem that can handle somewhat variable phone line quality.
Thanks in advance. I've been away from this stuff too long.
I got an external 56k V90 USR Sportster offa Ebay - $26bucks plus shippiny!
Was about $35 total to my door...
EBay has plenty of em - take you pick!
Twas the best thing I ever did for Linux! NO problems now!
(but XP doesn't like external modems- if ya don't have th moden ON when ya start(boot XP), it doesn't know how to go back an find it!!! Win 2k is OK here, but not XP! But Who'd want playtoy, the WPA(ctivated) Xp(experimment)anyway - over Win2k)
I've heard the Supra externals are good for linux too.
External is definitely the was to go for linux!
