I inherited a SYBA PCI 32 bit 4 port serial card with a Netmos 9845
chipset, and I'm trying to install it in my Dell Dimension 8100
running Redhat 7.1 with a 2.4.3 kernel. When I installed the hardware
and booted, the Redhat boot process recognized that I installed new
hardware, but called it an unknown device and asked me what I wanted to
do. I clicked on Configure and the system came up normally.
When I checked my dmesg output, I saw that only ttyS00 was listed
(there is one serial port on the motherboard) and assumed my kernel
did not recognize the card. I searched the newsgroups for other
questions about this card, looked in the HARDWARE-Howto and
SERIAL-Howto, and searched the Documentation that came with my kernel
without finding a solution.
I would appreciate any advice that could help me get this card
working on my system or a suggestion for some documentation I could
