I'm running FreeBSD on my R40. The internal modem is a winmodem and
isn't supported. I've got a Zonet ZFM5600 PC Card modem that works
fine. Other PC Card (or USB?) modems should also work, as long as they
look like a serial port peripheral to the OS and aren't winmodems.
If you have the port expander or docking station for your R40, you
should be able to connect an external modem to the serial port.
