hi, i have noticed that when i have the modem pc card connected to
the laptop, the serial port in the back does not work. the idea is
use it for an external mouse when possible.
i am using linux (stock slackware 3.0) and since i am trying to
be microsoft-free, i cannot try it under winblows.
so the question is, is this at all possible that when the pc card
modem is connected (a practical peripherals 28.8 modem/fax), the
serial port be used as well? or is it the case that the modem
card "takes over" the port and there is nothing that can be done?
