The acm driver works well.  If a modem conforms to that spec then you'll
be in good shape.

The reality about modems is that serial ports may be disappearing but
good hardware can still be found.  I'm just not sure many people on this
list would still consider paying $100 or less for a good modem that does
the job well.  The Chinese factories have brainwashed us into thinking
we need to find the cheapest thing we can find.  Or was that Clark
Howard who did that?
