Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

it says that i can access my modem using /dev/ttySHSF0
but where the heck is /dev/ttySHSF0 ?
is that a file on that specific location? or what? what is it?
i can access the modem thru KPPP @ /dev/modem
hmmmmmm what happened?
what is the real location of /dev/modem? where is it linked? hmmmmmmm
could someone explain this to me?
thank you very much....
I have no idea what /dev/ttySHSF0 is, but you can find out what your /dev/modem is linked to by opening up a terminal in KDE (I assume this is your desktop environment because you said you could access it with kpp). Once you get to the command line type the following:
ls -l /dev/modem
This will give you the permissions of /dev/modem as well as show you what it's linked to (the actual device instead of the symbolic link). Hope this helps.
Thanks, Tink. I understood what he was saying, but it still doesn't give me a "physical" location for it. I guess I'm thinking more along the lines of hardware physical location rather than "logical" location. It makes sense to me that /dev/ttyS0 = communication port 1, so I'm looking for what /dev/ttySHSF0 is equal to.
