Hi ,  stuck on this part - ' Last, check that the '/dev/modem' link is pointing to the '/dev/ttySL0' special file.' Last, check that the '/dev/modem' link is pointing to the '/dev/ttySL0' special file.   How do i do this?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

By "ls -l /dev/modem"
It should give you a listing with various details, one should show a link to /dev/ttySL0. If its doesnt, use the command "ln /dev/ttySL0 /dev/modem" (without the quotes - the ls -l /dev/modem command should also be without quotes)

There is actually a more up to date driver on smartlinks site. FC2 comes with the 2.6 kernel - the version you downloaded probably doesnt support this.  http://www.smlink.com/main/down/slmodem-2.9.10.tar.gz does

Sorry to be a pain, but do I use the same instructions from above for this driver?

Extract it. You dont have to extract it to /usr/src - anywhere will do. A slmodem-2.9.10  directory will be created. Follow the instructions in README in the slmodem-2.9.10 directory.
