yep, that's what put me onto scanModem.

lspci shows i have a "Broadcom Corporation BCM4212 v.90 56k modem (rev 02)"
which agrees with what scanModem says.

that's the bit i'm struggling with...

part-way down the ModemData.txt generated by scanModem it says "There is no 
support under 2.6.n kernels for the 14e4:4212  BCM V.90 56k modem"

is that as final as it sounds or is there a possibility i could get it 
working ?  

if not, can anyone recommend a cheap hardware modem that's known to play well 
with Ubuntu ?
