help getting 2 or modems working on RH9
Hi guys, I am currently running RH9 (2.4.20-8 kernel) and am trying to get 2 (and in the future more then 2) dial up internal modems working at the same time but I'm having a bit of trouble...
They are both modems based on the Intel 536EP chipset and are using the Intel supplied drivers (the modem manufacturer don't supply Linux drivers) and I can get either card working ok, but not both at the same time (i.e. I can install one and if I try and install the new one the old card is ignored). I am a bit of aLinux newbie so Im not sure if the ability to drive two modems at once is kernel dependent or if it relies on the drivers supplied, can anyone help?
For a bit of background: this is to be used as a dial-in server which can accept multiple dial in connections at the same time.
output of lspci if that helps:

Also if it turns out I will not be able to do this with internal modems, would it be possible to buy a pci serial card and install multiple external modems to each seperate physical COM port?
Thanks in advance
