Now I have a mystery.

I have three laptops here at the moment.  One Dell Insprion 1501 with Fedora 9
on it which is the laptop that I really intend for this to work on.  One "no
name" Intel laptop with Fedora 9 on it, and one Acer Aspire One with Fedora
10-beta on it.

I just plugged the modem into the Intel and the Acer to see what would happen.
The Acer found it and set up the /dev/ttyUSB0 device for me with no action
required on my part at all.  I set up the connection and away I go.

The Intel didn't set up the /dev/ttyUSB0 device, just like the Dell doesn't.

So... I guess my next step is to put F10-beta on the Dell and see what happens.
