Re: [vox-tech] Losing My Mind a.k.a. Modem Setup

What modem brand/model are you using?  PCI is a pain to setup...  Try to
figure out which port and IRQ it uses (through Linux, not through BIOS or 
Windows since IRQ seems to change between OS), then setup the /dev/ttyS*
device using the "setserial" program.  I *think* that *might* solve the

PS: "cat /proc/pci" to get IRQ info.  You may also get port info from
there, too.
