    I would like to install an external Best Data modem on a new pc running
    XPP SP2 with an Asus P5B Deluxe motherboard. The modem will be used
    a back-up since I will be going to DSL. The modem needs a DB 25 serial
    connector, but the Asus board has a DB9. Can I use a 9 to 25 pin
    adapter to connect between the MB and the modem?

    TIA
