    Problem solved...finally!


    Got it licked, Rob!

    Went back over the few docs I could find online for the modem, and
    carefully re-read all the manpages for the getty programs. Then
    removed all the getty stuff, reinstalled minicom, and compared the /etc/.config files with everything i had printed out from the
    previous installation. Then I noticed some fine print in the online
    docs for the modem..."some UNIX systems capable of assigning virtual
    serial ports may identify the modem as /dev/ACMn, or /dev/ttyACMn",
    So I changed the serial port ID to /dev/ttyACM0. The modem shot "OK"
    right back. Got a friend with a modem to call the BBS phone line, and
    he was able to connect at 56k down and 28.8k up. Now comes the fun part...setting up Synchronet, loading some files, and getting SMTP,
    QWK, and DDNS working. Thanks for the help, all! I'll probably be
    bugging sysadmins with silly noob questions as work on the BBS
    continues.

    I missed the bit where you said you were running getting. You don't
    want to do that on a dial out tty. getty provides the login prompt and interface to the authentication system. If you're trying to dial out it
    could see that as a login attempt and start writing all over your
    dialout.

    Glad you got it working anyway.

    none of us got where we are without asking noob questions, even if it
    was into Google or asking the manual for answers.
