If freeswitch running as root and not running as root doesn't work, this
should tell you that you have a permissions issue... The FreeSWITCH
developers fixing your systems perms issues is beyond the scope of the
FreeSWITCH project...

Otherwise, the FreeSWITCH modems basically work just like t38modem... The
only setting is how many of them to create then the only other settings is
configuring your platform to properly allow freeswitch (or the user that
freeswitch is running as) create those devices then configure hylafax to use
them as normal. 

The steps to do this can vary from platform to platform (or even versions of
the platform. For example how you do this on centos5 is not how you do this
on centos6 due to changes in the platform.)
