retrieving devices

I deleted /dev/ttyACM4 and /dev/modem, after first creating a link between them (which might have been a mistake). How can I get them back in their pristine states?

Also, why does my ISDN terminal adapter claim to be on ttyACM4 but no other usb devices do (same port)?

you can use:
mknod /dev/ttyACM4 c 166 4
read 'man mknod' and check out '/usr/src/linux/Documentation/devices.txt' for where I got the numbers from.

(if you do 'less devices.txt' , you can do '/ttyACM <enter>' and it will take you down to the section you need... '/' is for search

I think that /dev/modem is usually linked to /dev/ttyS0
cd /dev
ln ttyS0 modem
I don't know about your other question, sorry.
