    Hi jj, yes the howto is a bit out of date. If you download the "speedbundle"
    from the download page, your life should be much easier: it contains all
    the programs you need (kernel module, pppd, scripts etc): all you need
    to does is a make, make install. The make will prompt you to set various
    values (read the error messages) like your user name and password.
    You may need the attached Makefile.

    This probably means you are using the init script for the user mode driver
    and it has already launched modem_run.

    Yeah, I used it for ages too, it works fine. However, when the kernel module
    went into 2.5, someone had to take care of it :)

    Great!
