Angry Configuring Modem


I am running Red Hat Linux 7.1 and I installed my modem but for some reason after I reboot I have to run these two command to get my modem to work.
The Commands are:
insmod pctel
insmod ptserial

What do I need to do to get the modem to be setup and ready everytime I log in?

Add these two lines
/sbin/insmod /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/misc/pctel.o
/sbin/insmod /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/misc/ptserial.o
to /etc/rc.d/rc.local.

The phrase you're looking for is "dial on demand", maybe this helps, else look at tldp.org.
