    You need to be root to edit that file. Go to a terminal and issue the command:

    su (then enter the root password)

    I use vim to edit in text mode but if you aren't familiar with it, try using nano:

    nano /etc/inittab

    You might need to modprobe for the driver for your modem. You can issue the command "lsmod" to see if the driver's already loaded.
