It depends on the provider, but many of them just give you router
or modem settings these days.  Check the provider's website's
support/setup section to try to find out before you order.

http://sod.ms/ are very strong pro-Linux and solve some problem cases,
while our partner's http://www.software.coop/phone really shouldn't
cause any problems either (worksforme).

Hope that helps,
