I am attaching a very old document which lays down the steps for 
"mgetty" for Dial-In modem configuration, and is used even now by many 
new users / new students for their simple lab set ups for experiments 
etc. at the same place where the document was written. Just wanted to 
revise the document adequately to keep it compatible for future Fedora 
(systemd) releases.

The "init q" helps in just inserting a "#" at the appropriate place in 
/etc/inittab and reinitializing the init without any extra scripting or 
efforts, through a simple script to use the same modem for a Dial-Out 
purpose and revert back again.

If, systemd offers such functionality like "init q" in any other manner 
(would like to know about it) it will surely help. Otherwise, students 
being students will surely find alternatives :)
