I don't know if this is anygood or not but the current Kmart Catalogue 
starting Nov1 Saturday on page 7 has a NetComm external modem for $78
Its 56K V90
Now why I bring this up is once I was in OfficeWorks and they had a ADSL 
modem and the accomanying CD had Linex on it as well.
Now I have just had a look at there site they are based in Sydney

*AM5685 - InternetModem 56K V90*
 looks the same as in the Kmart Catalogue it may not be
It has a serial cable it come with Window drivers but it has AT Command 
set compatable
I don't know if that means you can set it up using At Commands on Linux

You can email them to find out if its Comptatable you need Pentium 32 MG 
Ram and 80MG fee on Harddrive

Of course being Kmart if you rushed in and bought it and it didn't work 
with your system you could always take it back for a refund Kmart are 
very good at that i bought a Microphone for a Computer from Dandenong 
and I couldn't get it too work and a Cable TV cable that didn't fit and 
returned it to Narre Warren and got a refund to my bank within a week to 
my credit card

So if you are in the market next week for a modem this may be worth 
looking at?
I don't know but it looks like they do support Linux with some of there
