Description of problem:
The modem line in the wvdial.conf file generated by redhat-config-network-
0.7.3-1 for my particular setup is: 'Modem = ttyS4'. The syntax is clearly 
wrong, and consequently wvdial complains about not being able to open 
device 'ttyS4'. After adding the '/dev' prefix to the device descriptor 
yielding 'Modem = /dev/ttyS4', everything works as expected. By the way, 
with the introduction of 'redhat-config-network' there is no generic user 
dialer anymore, and one has to login as root to dial in via wvdial (?).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type wvdial <isp-name>

Actual Results:  wvdial complains that it cannot open device 'ttyS4'

Expected Results:  wvdial dials in
