     Information on several modem chipset providers is provided below,

      Beginning with Fedora 2  kernel-2.6.6-1.427, kernel-headers needed 
      for compiling drivers are provide at: /lib/modules/kernel-version/build/
      Thus upgrading above kernel 2.6.5-1.358 to 2.6.6-* is Stongly Recommended
      pppd version 2.4.2 may not be fully compatible with 2.6.8 kernel releases.
      If an initial CONNECT is achieved without PPP being subsequently established,
      drop back to a 2.4.1 version.  This has worked for PCTEL AMR modem users,
      supported by the  slmodem software.
      Check pppd version with:
        pppd --version
     For kernel-version 2.4.20-8 , a failure in utomatic loading of PPP related modules 
     has been reported. It was necessary to manually load with:
      /sbin/modprobe /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net ppp_generic 
      /sbin/modprobe /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net ppp_deflate 
      /sbin/modprobe /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net ppp_synctty 
      /sbin/modprobe /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net ppp_async 
     or dialout efforts failed.
      The Internet Configuration Wizard writes a configuration file:
      containing a line default line
        Stupid Mode = yes
      Better dialup performance may be achieved by commenting out this line as:
        # Stupid Mode = yes
      Also non-USA Users may need to add to the [Modem0] block:
        Init2 = AT+GCI=hexadecimal_country_code
      but test without it first.
