Why oh why do so many people do all this modprobe stuff manually or in
rc.local etc.?????

If you are running a RedHat / Fedora / CentOS distribution, just do
"make config" in the zaptel directory, and it will create a proper
startup script in init.d and set up the rc.d links for invocation at
boot time. This proper script takes care of loading the modules AND
waiting for udev to create the device nodes.

You can also then do "service zaptel stop" and "service zaptel start"
to unload and reload the drivers if needed.
