The question on sharing an internet connection started me thinking about my own computers.
I have a PowerMac (beige; pre-USB) that I would like to hook up a 56K modem to. Now, every external modem I’ve every used has been designed for both PC and Mac–you just plug in a different serial cable adapter, and install the appropriate driver.
If I buy a PC 56K modem, will I be able to use some generic modem driver to run it? (Apple serial modem tool? I’ve never had to use it, but I think it ships w/Macs…) I ask b/c I’m cheap, will use this modem only infrequently, and PC modems seem to cost about half what Mac modems do.
