Thanks for the help! I have dial-up working now using a chat script with a
5 second TIMEOUT value when it sends its first init string (however, I still
couldn't get wvdial to work, not that it matters now.)
The only question I still have (just out of curiosity) is why wasn't this a
problem in the 2.2 kernel. With the older kernel, you didn't (seem to) have
to wait for the modem to power up. Why would it make a difference what
kernel you are using if this is an issue with the modem taking long to power
Thanks again for the assistance,
