Note -- for what it's worth.  External modems will adapt to the serial
rate that the computer sends to them.  So the 56k modem will work on
the 9600 or 19200 serial port.  It just won't work at full speed.
The modem-to-modem flow control will throttle the data stream back to
the speed that the serial port can handle.
