[clug] Configuring a modem to answer

Hey all,

I have a modem which I have configured on a spare phone line to answer 
and do the mgetty / ppp thing. When I ring the modem from a test 
machine, I can hear it answer, but there is this consistent beeping over 
the top about once a second, for about 20 - 30 seconds, and the 
handshake fails.

I assume that I need to put the modem which is answering (a v.90 modem 
if that matters) into funky ISP answer mode.

How do I do that?
