I meant to mention..   Even if your modems are '56k', that only works 
when a 56k modem dials into a digital modem on a digital trunk line.    
two '56k' modems dialing each other over conventional analog telephone 
("POTS") circuits will get at best 33k, and more likely somewhere 
between 14k and 28k if the lines are remote and rural.

btw, re someone elses comment about 'you kids'... Would you like to see 
the old Racal Vadic VA1200 in my junk bin?  I think I still have a 
Courier 2400E, too.  The OP has repeatedly stated he wants his full 
CentOS Desktop, presumably Gnome or KDE, and not just a remote terminal 
session, or even a X application.
