Great idea! But I don't have any modem config files yet, that's why I
want to run faxaddmodem in the first place. And, maybe this is my fault,
I can't find any documentation on what to do to create (a) modem config
file(s). The only thing I see is 'run faxaddmodem', and that doesn't work.

Yeah, I figured that out. But since faxaddmodem is (as far as I can see)
the only 'documentation' to how a modem should be configured it would
be nice if I could make this thing work without reading the source code.

Could you please send me a sample modem configuration to adapt? That
would make it quite a bit easier, I guess.
