Only the last one is a file. The others are folders. I did a sudo cp of
the file to your own Desktop folder. Then I did a sudo chown jla:jla on
the copy. The line in links.conf will be different if not using an
external modem on COM1, and that file itself no longer exists in the next
Ubuntu release, so one must use whatever method of permanently creating
/dev/modem is available. The sudo command and gksudo are both used to gain
root privileges, without which the NetZero client would not be able to set
up the kernel's routing table.
