Is there any way to tell the difference between a digital phone and a
conventional one? I'm thinking of setting up CU-SeeMe on a portable
for use by people who travel and I don't want them to fry the modem by
plugging into a digital line. I've heard that many companies and
hotels now have digital phone systems. Does the cable look the same?
Does the dial tone sound the same?

Speaking of digital phone systems, what kind of speed do they offer -
64Kbps? And what type of termination equipment would you need to use
one - the same stuff as for ISDN? Thanks for any help.
