I know you can do something like this in bash

echo ATH2 >> /dev/modem

and it works. You might also look at chat (which I'd think would be MUCH
simpler than minicom) or dip. 

(people still write games with modem-modem support? hell, I thought it was bad
that ipx was still included... :) unless this isn't a game? *shrug* whayebba,
echo gets the hayes commands to the hw just fine)
