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!
