Yup, I mean an ordinary 56k modem connected to a serial port.
I am pretty well convinced the modem side of things does work OK, but recent suggestions to change DNS settings haven't got me online ...

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) :)
