Do 'whoami' and see who you are really logged on as. Why do you need to
change /dev/modX anyway? /dev/ttySX is a COM port. But if you really need
to, just make a link to /dev/modX and call it /dev/ttysX. Or whatever you
need. Same trick as you go around with modem setup sometimes with programs
that use /dev/modem, which is not initially installed in the system.
