When I was looking for one of these I was pointed to eBay. I found a
nice hardware modem for about $15 total and it works great in Linux.
I just looked and there appear to be quite a few. I just did a search
for "Hardware PCI Modem". Check the shipping rates. Some people like
to jack up the shipping costs to offset a low bid.
