Anyone else getting this message with a new MacBookPro 15" 2.2ghz and the old faithful Apple Modem (the tiny stick one)?

The error dialog with the message pops up at startup time and the reference to it has been removed from System Preferences after restarting from the TimeMachine restore.


Macbook Pro 15" 2.4ghz Core i5 + iPhone 4, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

    Got some great help via macrumors forum - the modem is unsupported in 64bit mode. The new MBP's boot into this by default now.

    Booted up into 32bit mode by pressing 3 + 2 keys, unplugged and re-inserted the modem and up and running.

    Fortunately, I dont need to use it that often, so I can run in 64bit mode most of the time and reboot into 32bit when I need to.
