If you want to stick a card into your box then the only cards which are
currently supported are ISA cards from Dr. Neuhaus (the so calles Niccy
cards) or Teles/Creatix in Germany.

You can hook up a TA (aka. ISDN modem) such as the ZyXel 1486DI (?)
or one from Motorola. Since these hook to the serial port you can handle
them just like an external modem. Jordan Hubbard is using a setup
like this with great success.

A TA is the most flexible solution since the German cards are designed
for EuroISDN (the European ISDN standard) and there's no guarantee that
they'll work correctly outside of Europe.
