Does anyone know if SuSe 9.2 professional definitely works OK with a US Robotics modem on dial-up? I'm beginning to think maybe I should get SuSe 9.3 and give that a go!

Do you mean a regular 56k modem plugged into a serial port?  Most if not all
distros should surely be able to talk to the modem as a dumb 33.6k modem if
they can't send the right AT commands to get the modem to neg up to V42.
Serial ports Just Work (tm) :)
