New SIIG 4 Port PCI serial card (16C954) driver problem

I have installed a new SIIG Quartet Serial 550 PCI card
and cannot get it to work correctly. I have used older
SIIG cards before with great success. They used the
16550 UART chip. This new one has an "Oxford Semiconductor
Inc." OXmPCI954 UART chip on it.
I'm using Suse 9.2 professional on a Dell dimension 2400.
The Software does recognizes the serial card OK.
I am using minicom to communicate through the serial
ports as I have done many times before on other cards.
Has anyone run into this problem and solved it?

Thanks Glenn
