Help with Modem Diver


For the past few days or maybe even weeks, I have been working hard to get my HSP modem to work. Finally I did it, but in root.

I used the pctel-0.9.6 modem driver, and I followed the popular procedure to install it. Everything works fine in root, and I can access the internet. But I can't do that as any general user. Is there some way to install the module at start up, without worrying about load them again each time I log in as a user?
Thanks.

waiting ...

I can't remember clearly, but I think it is from Linmodem HowTo, a very popular article about the install soft modem.
Basically, the problem is what I should do so that I don't need to run
insmod -f pctel and insmod -f ptserial
everytime.

Lightbulb ehhhh.......

that's an easy one...
just add those commands to your /etc/rc.d/rc.modules file (also works with the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file)
