    If you think permissions are the problem ->
    sudo chgrp users /dev/modem # or wherever your modem is
    sudo chmod 770 /dev/modem

    If that does not fix it, an excellent program for checking modem problems is minicom.
    Look here to find out how to test modem connectivity with minicom ->

    This is because when you install Knoppix with the multi-user (DEBIAN-like) system, it is truly a Debian (stripped of some software, of course). From now on, if there is any distro-specific options for software or something, choose Debian.

    if you ever feel like tinkering around...You can install Knoppix (like on cd version) just by doing->
    dd if=/dev/scd0 of=/dev/somewhere
    This doesn't install the kernel, so you're going to have to mount /dev/somewhere as an iso9660 filesystem and add a kernel. (and a bootloader)
