www.linmodems.org should give you a pointer as to which internal modems might work. Best approach, however, is to use an external serial(RS-232) modem. You should be able to pick up a second-hand one for 10 or a new one for about 20-40.

I'd support the external modem choice for RH9 - later releases of linux stuff may well be better, but internal modems which are likely to be 'winmodems' can give a lot of trouble.

Real internal (PCI) modems that need no special driver can be found if you look hard enough, though they tend to be much more expensive than softmodems. For years I used one made by Multitech. It cost about 100, but worked a treat.
