Problem with spell checkers, sometimes they change things. Previous post should have said GPRS modem, sorry.

Subject: Re: [Gumstix-users] Modem for Dial In

I'm interested in interfacing a GARS modem (the Telit GM862) to the Gumstix
(basix 200-BT) on the HWUART as well as using a Bluetooth cell phone. I saw
some mail on the list where several users
successfully used a cell phone for internet access about a year ago. These
devices are similar to a modem, and I would like to know if it is possible
to add PPPD to the kernel without reflashing and how to add the chat script
support.

Thanks for any help,   Al
