you can probably at least figure out which port your modem is using
(ttyS?)... and then check the char-major/minor values.
For example... I have a HSP56 Micromodem (PCTel) on my computer... which
ends up using ttyS15.
ls -l /dev/ttyS15 looks like
crw-rw---- 62 79
(or something close)
62 is the char-major number... and 79 is the minor number
In /etc/conf.modules... I have:
alias char-major-62 pctel
(pctel is the module/driver for the modem).
make sure you did a 'depmod -a' to make your 'modules.dep' current.
If the driver needs to load other modules, etc... it might be easier to just
add a script to run '/sbin/modprobe blah' in a particular runlevel instead
of wrestling with /etc/conf.modules for loading several modules.
