Yeah ..
Here's an update.  It turns out I need to have a zaptel.conf
file !?? Ok, so I found that and I now have the followign
>>>> cat zaptel.conf <<<<<

# Load FXS device (a TDM400P) as Channel #, and use
kewlstart FXO signalling 

# Load FXO device (a T100X) as Channel #, and use kewlstart
FXS signalling 
In my zapata.conf file, I have an entry for the TDM400P as





mailbox = 2100
callerid = "Fedora" <2100>

channel => 1
Now, I have two SIP clients on my local LAN, [2000] and
[2100]. The mailbox is at [2999]
Locally (i.e. on the LAN, everything works, i.e., I can
place calls to all my extensions, and leave voice mail.
extension [2000] SIP using X-lite on a PC
extension [2001] SIP using X-lite on a Laptop (PC)
extension [2100] ZAP using the TDM400P board

When I run ztcfg -vv I am getting:
Zaptel Configuration

Channel map:

Channel 01: FXO Kewlstart (Default) (Slaves: 01)
Channel 02: FXS Kewlstart (Default) (Slaves: 02)

2 channels configured.
.. which looks OK to me.

Now, of course I need to tell asterisk about the FXO card,
so I add the following to zapata.conf ..

channel => 2
and when I start asterisk, this is what shows ...

Parsing '/etc/asterisk/zapata.conf': Found
Registered channel 1, FXO Kewlstart signalling
WARNING Unable to specify channel 2: No such device
: Unable to open channel 2: No such device
here = 0, tmp->channel = 2, channel = 2
msetup_zap: Unable to register channel '2'
WARNING: mast_load_resource: load_module failed, returning
Any ideas?
BTW: trying to make the X100P channel 1 does not help
either.  ztcfg shows the channels, but asterisk will fail to
