I think there's a project on sourceforge which supports speedtouch on linux
and gives some details on how it all works.
On Debian you can install the 'speedtouch' package which should help configure
things. This also includes the 'modem_run' command which is needed for the
2.6.8 kernel supplied with sarge.
(I installed the 2.6 kernel because I had no luck getting this to work with
2.4 - however YMMV).

think it's referring to the fact that you no longer need the
command 'modem_run' - but the rest of the package is still useful as it does
other things and sorts out the configuration as well.
You might need to tweak a few other things, I think I had to but I can't
