    They should work if you burn an ISO on CD. Or you know how to install Linux/BSD from ISO which can be on CD or HDD.

    maybe not...

    normally internal modems = win modems....

    and win modems are not detected in linux...

    especially fedora.....

    just double check it... :wink:

    coz... i too am a human!!!! :oops:

    The point about internal modems is that the drivers for them are not exactly free. I have a dlink 560++ internal modem which i wanted to configure in linux (FC3) the drivers is available at a site called convexent or some similar name the problem is that the free version of the driver limits the speed to 14.4K and to get the full version you have to PAY. This site has almost all the drivers for internal modems working in linux but the payment factor is the problem. So the best option is to go in for an external serial modem which requires no additional drivers in linux and gives you the full speed.
