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!

out here in "Techno-Devoido-Land"!

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,
So ...  as I said, the BITTER end ...

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
