Alternative modems... Well, HP has used MultiTech modems for a while. I'd suggest something like a MT5634ZDX or MT5634ZBA.
Are you sure your modem is broken? On a D2xx class without any extra mux cards you only have 2 9 pin serial ports unless you have the optional access card. The 2 serial ports are not supported for modem usage due to limited handshaking lines. They may work for a while, but there's a chance that they won't work after they've reset. The port on the access card is really for use with a modem for HP dial in use or for Predict, and it's possible that the port may be hung.
