1. Why Has My PC Card Modem Quit Working?

Hello, everyone.

I have a UMAX 316T 300 mHz AMD K6-2 notebook running Red Hat 5.2 with
the 2.0.36 kernel.  All of a sudden, my PC Card modem has quit

more by either resetting the permissions for it with chmod or
reconfiguring its port with setserial.  (By the way, what causes these
to ever change once they've been set?) Neither has worked this time.
Any ideas out there?  Does anything like this ever happen to the rest of

Until I can find a solution, these messages will come to you courtesy of
my modest contribution to the obscenely huge pile of filthy lucre heaped
