Re: Feedback

Sorry about sending to the LPD group, I at first thought it was a "help
line"  I do appericate the e-mails that you have sent me, however.   They
pointed me in the right direction and I got my modem working after figuring
out WTF I was doing.  If you would like I could type up a doc on it, but it
was not much really.  Just this:

Check what the modem is set to in Windows (COM3, IRQ5, 03E8)
At console:
pnpdump > /etc/isapnp.conf
ln -s /dev/ttyS2/dev/modem
setserial /dev/ttyS2
Console responds with:
"/dev/ttyS2 Port: COM3 UART: 16550A Port: 0x03e8 IRQ: 4"
setserial /dev/ttyS2 port 0x03e8 irq 5

Works like a charm except it is not sticky.  I have to do that every time I
restart... but someone said something about a rc.local file and that I had
to edit it.  Not sure where that is or what to put.. but I will find it.
I appericate your help, thank you very much.
Casey Cain.
