If they haven' done it already someone will be along to tell you that
you shouldn't use a winmodem and that you should get a proper one. That
said, some of us have no choice, (not practical ones and so my
sympathies are with you).
So, *assuming* you have downloaded the correct driver from conextant for
*your kernel version* - I am not a linux geek, so I couldn't tell you if
it's 2.x.x or 2.y.y. It's defiitely going to be above 2 though. If you
haven't uninstall the rpm (with rpm -e packagename - not rpm -e
packagename.rpm or anything else), and then download the correct one.
Then read the man file for ln command.
What you want to do is create a symbolic link from /dev/ttySHSF0 to
/dev/modem. The command line is probably:
ln -s /dev/modem /dev/ttySHSF0
But don't take my word for read the man pages :)
