No such device /dev/ttyS1
This is my first post on this forum. I use debian sid with kernel 2.6.4 and gnome 2.4.
I have modem a dial-up, is an us robotics of 56 kbps.
My internet conection worked well since some days ago, I use pon, and when I tried to connect to internet, I doen't connect. This is the log:

Sep 12 12:08:37 debi pppd: Failed to open /dev/ttyS1: No such

If I do:
setserial -gG /dev/ttyS1
I obtain the same message of No such device.
I've tried with:
First I removed the device and later I created it with MAKEDEV, but I have the same problem. I've tried to create the same device with knod too but if fails too.
The more unusual thing is that if I put a live cd like knoppix or slax, then I mount my
debian partition with:
mount -t ext3 -o dev /dev/hda2 /mnt
With dev to use my /dev/ttyS1 of my debian sid.
And later I do:
chroot /mnt (to work and execute command with my debian)
With this, when I execute pon I have no message of No such device of /dev/ttyS1,
and my modem does the sound correctly but it doesn't connect to internet (it says
I have recompiled the kernel, readed the how-to serial and searched threads over the net, but I don't get a solution. Anyone know what can I do? Is there a solution? I'm fear that
