Subject: Typhoon Modem Quick Com 56 PCI works - I now can use my WinModem,
 the Typhoon Modem Quick Com 56 PCI. It is a Lucent one (part of lspci's output
 follws): --- 00:0a.0 Communication controller: Lucent Microelectronics 56k
 WinModem (rev 01) --- Thanks to XX for giving the clue.  I had problems to set
 up a connection with pppconfig and pon,
 but with the great wvdial everything works fine.  But one little problem
 remains: I used the precompiled tgz for the 2.2.17 Kernel,
 and the ltinst script coming with it looks like that: --- # /*name and version
 number:@(#)ltinst 1.3*/ # /*date of get:     05/10/00 11:23:50*/ # /*date of
 delta:   12/28/99 12:10:46*/

Thanks to Jaques Goldberg for giving the clue.

I had problems to set up a connection with pppconfig and pon, but with the
great wvdial everything works fine.

But one little problem remains:
I used the precompiled tgz for the 2.2.17 Kernel, and the ltinst script coming
with it looks like that:
---
#	/*name and version number:@(#)ltinst	1.3*/
#	/*date of get: 		  05/10/00 11:23:50*/
#	/*date of delta:	  12/28/99 12:10:46*/
#===========================================================================
#       File Name :     ltinst
#===========================================================================
#!/bin/sh

group="uucp"
mode="666"


device="/dev/ttyS14"

./ltuninst > /dev/null 2>/dev/null

/sbin/insmod -f ltmodem

rm -f $device

mknod $device c 62 78

rm -f /dev/modem

ln -s $device /dev/modem

chgrp $group $device
chmod $mode $device

cp ltmodem.o /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc/

echo "/sbin/insmod -f ltmodem" >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local
---
I ran it once and then changed the group of /dev/ttyS14 to modem and the mode
to crw-rw---- . Then I used modconf to make the ltmodem.o reloaded every time 
I'm booting (as you can guess I'm using a Debian system (2.2)). So far so good,
but it occasionally (not only at reboots!) happens that the mode of /dev/ttyS14
is changed to crw-r----- without me doing anything. Has anybody a clue what
might be the reason for that?
