A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away (actually, it was on 31-May-99),
the great prophet William Woods once wrote:

Almost any 56K PC Card modem will work for you.  As long as it is NOT a
'WinModem'.  I personally prefer the US Robotics Sportster cards --
reasonably priced, quite capable and speedy, handles bad phone lines well.
But it's up to you.

As for ethernet, I recently bought a Netgear FA-410TXC card.  It's
10/100Mbps (supports both protocols!), and was quite reasonably priced
($70 at Circuit City, of all places!)  Works very well for me, I use it
with Win98, Linux, and FreeBSD (yes, I really have 3 OS's on my laptop).
