Points well taken. I should have made it clear that I was referring to the 
how-to and _not_ to linmodems.org, although I could quibble about the link to 
Rob Clark's site at the bottom of the linmodems.org page. I'm not sure what 
happened there, but trying to access that site has become a real crapshoot. 
Sometimes it works, but most times it doesn't.

Again, you're correct. I understand that some current distrubutions not only 
indentify some winmodems during the installation process but also configure 
them. (I'm not sure if Fedora does this or not.)
