I have SuSE 8.0 with a Voodoo and have no problem.
For a modem use a real modem. The external Modem Blaster is
good and give a good banwidth. Winmodem are just good for the
garbage can anyway.
For the hardware you just have to check what hardware is supported
before you buy. As for Nvidia you should go to Nvidia's web site
for the drivers. They are the ones writing the drivers and you
can't get it with the distributions.
Tired of Microsoft's rebootive multitasking?
then it's time to upgrade to Linux.
