I suggest that you look at modem compatibility lists (search the Web). Modems
are supported by the Linux kernel rather than SuSE, but you might be able to
rely on drivers that are supplied among the SuSE CD's. If the modem in
question is a notorious Winmodem, you might be better off investing in an
external one and put the horses before the wagon (i.e. check compatibility
before purchase) when you buy hardware intended for Linux in the future. You
could otherwise buy a computer from a Linux vendor that pre-installs
Best wishes and good luck,
