If someone can come up with a test kernel for me, I can test this
on my CEM33 on my Compaq LTE 5200.
I can probably also get hold of a few of the others in that series
and test those as wel, as the company I work for has been using
these a lot.
Unless I receive a kernel during the next three hours, I will have
to delay the testing until the weekend (Friday night METDST).
Is there a driver for the modem part as well?
