I've used smsclient to do this, but to be honest the grief of
maintaining an analog line and modem makes this a bit of a pain.
I'd recommend using one of the online sms gateways - the cost is about
the same, and it's a zillion times easier to set up. Obviously not much
use if you want to alert to the fact your internet connection is down,
but good otherwise ;)
I'm using http://www.esendex.com/, and it works very well.
