Ack, I'm the exact oposite :-)  The first 2 modems I owned were internals; a
14.4 Zoom (with RPI-- early-day Winmodem.  Ick.) and a 14.4 USR (after selling
Zoom modem :) ).  My 3rd modem was an external USR 33.6.  *sigh* Love at first
sight and usage.

Status lights, easily accessible phone ports, etc etc.
That, and external modems save an ISA slot..  Quite nice if you have a
motherboard with 4PCI, 3ISA with 1 of them a shared PCI/ISA slot.
