I think that the best thing to do, before buying a new modem device, is to
test if the winmodem can work with drivers provided with SUSE and/or if your modem chipset is recognised and supported, this
kind of drivers can be used successfully.
Please visit linuxant website and use the scanmodem script (by Marvin
Stodolvsky) you can find therein: it will check the chipset and give
indications about the usage of drivers. This page provides full details about
installation procedures:

It is not so hard, so it is worth to try......
