Bellsouth USB ADSL Modem

A friend of mine has Bellsouth ADSL. At my advice, he requested the 10baseT modem, but was told that only USB modems are availible now.
We tried compiling both the 2.3.39 and 2.3.38 kernels, with no sucess. On the .39 kernel, it couldn't compile the ACM module. On the .38 kernel, it fails in various places.
The cd that came with the modem contains utilities to trick the system into thinking that it's a network device (pseudo-tty redirectors and whatnot) so it obviously works with Linux. But, how?

Back off to the 2.3.24 kernel. I've had quite a lot of fun with the 2.3.38/9 and finally went back to thre 2.3.24
NazraxAuthor Commented:
Backing off to the .36 kernel allowed everything to compile; unfortunately, /proc/bus/usb/drivers reports that no driver is loaded for the modem (but the modem does exist in the file). /proc/bus/usb/devices reports that hub and acm are loaded.
Thought for the day:
        There's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore like an idiot.
