If you're buying a "real" modem that either has an onboard serial UART,
or an external one that uses your serial port, the brand of the modem is
pretty much irrelevant, as one serial modem looks the same as the next
to Linux.

Of course, "real" modems are getting harder and harder to find (and much
more expensive now, as they're pretty much a niche market).
