Thanks for all the ummm ... encouragement? [thanks, Darin! Cheered me
right up! ;-)]
Richard, there are actually products very similar to the LinkSys for
ISDN, so you pointed me in the right direction!

Yeah, I should have been more specific: Adelphia wants $1000 a pole and
the estimate is @40 poles. We are "beyond the Pale" as far as DSL goes,

What are the specs on that modem? We may very well end up w/ this ISDN,
horror stories and all. And from Verizon, I've got some horror stories
unrelated to on-line access, too! 8-O
