Hrm, I always thought ATM networking was dead and gone. Like AppleTalk or DECNet.... Branko, do you actually use this, or know someone who does?

Well, the linux-atm package is required for ueagle-based modems to work properly. It so happens that the eagle chip is used in Sagem modems which are quite popular in France and Serbia, and probably elsewhere, where ISPs give you a cheap modem. I myself am not using it, but my friend owns the Sagem modem.
