Ah!  Oh well, perhaps I shouldn't have bothered spending a couple of 
hours (again!) trying to get a 56kbps HSF modem working in Ubuntu;  but 
it's all learning, isn't it?  Trouble is, I've only ever managed this 
twice, and only once with Ubuntu:  a Hardy on an ancient Compaq.  (The 
other time was with Debian Etch on an equally ancient Dell laptop.)

"Why do you do it?" I hear you cry.  Because (like Everest) it's there!
