GENERIC kernels don't include ISDN capabilities, so you'll need to
rebuild.  If you're using a Speedway, look for AVM in
/usr/src/sys/i386/conf/LINT and lift the appropriate parameters from
that part of the file.

You can check the capabilities of a GENERIC kernel by reading
through /usr/src/sys/i386/conf/GENERIC - you won't see anything
mentioning ISDN, i4b or AVM in there.
