Generic Modem - No Connection - Error 2


Does anyone have a solution for my prob?
I installed my modem(Elsa Microlink Basic 56k) with the Generic Modem Driver on RH Fedora 3. After a reboot it won't work with the message "can't establish connection - error 2".
What does error 2 mean? Is there any information about the dial up error codes in the internet? On M$ OS it works fine.

OK one day later, I found the problem.

I checked wvdial. And there was no modem defined. wvdial told me that there was also no /dev/modem file.
So I looked up the ttyS* configuration in /etc/sysconfig/hwconf. My modem was was on ttyS0. Then I created a link from /dev/ttyS0 to /dev/modem, which was missing.
And now it works again.

There's yet another problem. Every system restart I have to do this procedure to create a new link. Is there any possibility to create a permanent link? What's matter with this deletion of the link? Is there a program witch deletes the linkfile?
