Hmm, I have downloaded the 'hsfmodem-6.03.00lnxt04082400full' version last
week.  I just checked your web site, and still this is the latest version.
Is support for /etc/modprobe.d mechanism available in this version?

I did this, and modprobe did its job fine.  Now, /dev/ttySHSF0 exists, and
/dev/modem points to it.  hsfconfig --info also shows the following:

Config for modem unit 0: /dev/ttySHSF0
	Device instance: 0-PCI-14f1:2f00-14f1:2004
	HW revision    : Basic2 2.18 Standard DAA 3VoltsIA
	HW profile name: hsfpcibasic2hsfi
	Registration ID: 212A-EEBB-9944
	License owner  : [owner omitted]
	License key    : [key omitted]
	License status : OK
	Current region : USA (T.35 code: 00B5)

But still kppp shows the "can't open modem" error.  What can be wrong?
