After Purging udev including rming the entire /etc/udev directory and
reinstalling to fix a sound problem I have

After rebooting, still no /dev/modem and have to create symlink again
ChatagnierL-Home:/etc/udev/scripts# /usr/bin/udevtest /dev/modem

Thanks for any help,
Is your ppp support loaded into the kernel? If not, try loading it
(modprobe ppp) and then restarting udev.
I guess not.
ChatagnierL-Home:/temp/Modem# modprobe ppp
FATAL: Module ppp not found.
Using KI 2.6.8-2-686.
And thanks for your reply to my post.
