Whenever you have questions, you should state which Linux distro, kernel
version and model of hardware you are having trouble with. I am currently
online with an old Zoom 2819 ISA PnP fax/modem originally K56flex, flashed
to V.90 running SuSE 7.1 w/generic kernel 2.4.9.
Originally I tried hard jumpering the modem, but Win95 used different irq
anyway, so I simply used a setserial command to use the Win95 irq without
using isapnp.conf. Eventually I jumpered it for Pnp and used isapnp.conf.
However, with this distro and 2.4.x kernels, I specifically compile the
kernel without any PnP support (otherwise it uses an irq that conflicts
with my ISA soundchip), I don't use isapnp.conf (or I get an error like
yours), and it simply works. Maybe the BIOS automatically sets it based
on Windows settings.

Do the serial ports in /proc/ioports say serial(auto)? Doesn't your
motherboard have a Com1?
See what dmesg or /var/log/messages (or SuSE has a boot.msg log) shows for
serial ports. Does it show a 16550A UART for all serial ports if finds?
Linux apparently assigns my modem to ttyS03 (/dev/ttyS3) using port 0x02e8
(irq = 3), and the proper UART shows up, which means it should work as is.

What port and irq does Win98 say it is using.
