Thanks. The modem worked fine in RH5.2 and also in WinDoze3.1 and 98
after the installation I ran the RH admin tool to see if there were any
new config options I could take advantage of and noticed the new port
scheme and selected ttyS2 but zilch. I just booted to WinDoze last night
and checked the modem setup and saw that I moved the modem to COM4 at some
point and have forgotten (he sheepishly admits). I did try to link /dev/modem
to /dev/ttyS3 manually with no luck but maybe I have to use
setserial or use the admin tool. I will try configuring to ttyS3 when I
can wrest the machine from my kids again. Thanks for replying.
