the linux side of things is easy, install uugetty and put this into
s2:35:respawn:/sbin/uugetty -d /etc/default/uugetty.ttyS1 ttyS1 38400 vt100
assuming your modem is on ttyS1 (dos: com2). if it's on com1, change
the ttS1 to ttS0.
and put the file i attached into /etc/default/uugetty.ttyS1 or
.ttyS0.. (but change the ttyS14 in my file to suit your com port!)
the biggest problem, IME, is modem incompatibilities which need hours
of tweaking and testing to hunt down failed handshaking or
if you have probs.. it'll be the modems. tweak the modem init string
in the ../default/uugetty.ttySx file.
if you can get that going, then next thing is ppp dial-up networking.
