Unhappy /dev/modem Keeps Disappearing

HI Guys SO close to configuring LinModem - actually got it to dial and connect.

How i get /dev/modem to be there in the first place(work), is to install and configure the drivers/modules(?) by doin:

./configure --with-hal=pctel789
make install
--change to root--
insmod -f pctel
insmod -f ptserial


Then run kppp and connect to internet (FYI - internet doesn't work DNS issue i think) but how can i make /dev/modem stay because after a while the i get the error /dev/modem doesnt exist. didnt change anything.

I even added to /etc/modules.conf

# for pctel modem
alias char-major-62 ptserial
below ptserial pctel
# country code for pctel modem
options ptserial country_code=32

Then ran depmod -a (as root) but no luck, i only get /dev/modem if i reinstall the drivers each time.

Thanks CaM

Mandrake 9.1

PS i think modem should be on /dev/ttyS15 - but that often disapears too
