Using Samsung A920 as modem


I am trying to connect to the internet over my cell phone (that's what I use for my connection - I'm not just trying something out). I have a clean install of Kubuntu 6.06.1, which uses kernel 2.6. When I connect my modem, a bunch of stuff is spit out to /var/log/messages (listing is below). I see that it registers the cdc-acm driver.

I've tried doing "modprobe usbserial vender=#### product=####" as is suggested here. I have also seen this, as well as some other posts. Generally, they say to modprobe some character device (whichever their phone works with; mine uses cdc-acm). Then linux should assign a /dev/something to it, and show that it has done so in /var/log/messages or dmesg. Then, optionally, they link the /dev/modem to it. And just dial away with ppp. The problem is (I think), mine doesn't create a /dev/ device.

Also, if I disconnect, the phone, funnythings happen. It will do a memory dump to /var/log/messages. If kInfoCenter is running, it will hang. When I shutdown, it halts when it gets to bluetooth stuff, and I have to hit the reset switch.

Thanks in advance for your help.

The following is the output to /var/log/messages when I plug my phone in.
