Hi John,
you may not have solved your problem with an external usb USRobotics 
modem. If it was a relatively cheap modem
it is probably a software modem, and as such will give you a few 
headaches.  I have a USRobotics model 5637 that as far as I know is the 
only external usb model from USRobotics that will work with no 
problems.  It goes on ttyACM0 that is number 0 not uppercase o. What 
type and model of modem you have been using. An external serial model 
will usually give you no problems. Google linux usb modems and check 
them out, or go to the USRobotics web site, and do some checking there.
