I did read something to the effect that some winmodems are now 
supported.  If not it would be worth trying the Linuxant route.  They 
started off using the 'free' model, but have decided they need to make a 
charge.  Given that the charge is probably less than purchasing an 
external modem it's still worth considering.  They have some software 
which detects the type of winmodem so you can get an idea whether they 
can help you, and then a try before you buy in any case.  Seems pretty 
reasonable unless you are hooked on the idea of never paying anyone to 
write any software ever.

My plan, when Windows ME finally collapses on my mother's laptop is to 
take that route.  Fortunately she has so far been extremely disciplined 
with regard to clicking on dangerous things and getting a virus.
