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.
