Are you comfortable compiling kernels?
If not I'll compile one for you for the test.
Currently I'm happily under 2.4.0-test 12:
Module Size Used by
ppp_deflate 39164 1 (autoclean)
bsd_comp 4148 0 (autoclean)
ppp_async 6220 1 (autoclean)
ppp_generic 12820 2 (autoclean) [ppp_deflate bsd_comp
ltmodem 364948 1
input 3328 0
serial 42192 1 (autoclean) (ONLY suporting my mouse)
isa-pnp 27528 0 (autoclean) [ltmodem serial]
usbcore 27684 0 (unused)

   Are there any particular kernel config choices that will be
beneficial for this problem?

Can these be included in the LTmodem packages you are working up?
