A couple of years ago, I bought a "LAN modem" (dialup router, really) for my
parents. It's an external box with a handful of idiot lights, a phone
jack...and a couple of network jacks to connect to your computers (or a LAN).
Given how much of a pain in the *ss getting dial-up connections to work on
Linux can be (especially compared to setting up a LAN connection), this could
be the way to go.
(What I bought was the Actiontec Dual PC Modem:
I paid $70 for it at Fry's. Froogle lists prices down to about $55 for it.)
