    Assuming that you have configured ttySx or that it has been done for
    you. What does dmesg say?

    I'm the guy who write the How-To guides for HylaFAX for SunOS, and some
    of the early Linux guides. This won't necessarily do it: it's not clear
    what device it is already set to after the isapnp configuration, and
    what this guy wants to configure on it.

    Jake? May I suggest downloading and installing HylaFAX from
    www.hylafax.org, which has this fabulous tool called "faxaddmodem" for
    configuring modems for dial-up/dial-out fax/modem and getty use?

    Sounds like a useful utility.

    It would be nice to know whether his card has the serial port integrated with
    the modem or not, too. I have several like that.

    If he goes to kppp/setup/device/modem device - drop down menu he will find
    a series of ports to choose from, a good one to start from would be
    /dev/tty/S0.
    A much easier way would be to get a serial modem.

    I have two serial ports (I turned them off in BIOS setup to get the
    modem to work). The modem is a Zoom Internal Voice v90 Faxmodem. I
    am using Mandrake Linux 8.2
