Cox uses those modems generally. -- Micheal Patterson Network Administration Cancer Care Network 405-917-0600 _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
