I opted for a plain vanilla external serial modem (USR) when I went out 
to purchase one because I had earlier read in an online Linux HOW-TO of 
Linux   USB support being not very mature.  I would suggest that you do 
the same - that's _my_ humble opinion and _my_ limited knowledge.

Secondly, I have seen "problem-connecting-to-the-Internet-via-PPP" type 
posts so many times on this list (including one of mine!) that I think 
the next version of Ubuntu should be able to let end-users create a 
dial-up Internet connection and connect to the Internet easily - using a 
restricted normal user account using sudo or whatever (not root!).
