Without "call-waiting", the second caller gets a "busy" signal.
With "call-waiting" and a US Robotics modem,
add 'S10=1' to the 'AT' modem-initialization string,
so that the "alert" breaks-in to the current connection,
and causes a "hang-up".

In some areas, the telephone-company, for a monthly-fee,
will send you, over the Internet, notification that you
have a second incoming call.  Check with your local TELCO.
