Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am in verse to connect my Windows Mobile 6.1 to Fedora 11 Box. I have Dell Inspiron 1525 model on top of which I have fresh fedora Installed.I installed Wine and Activesync and it got installed successfully. Now when I am trying to connect it shows all the COM1/COM2/COM3/COM4 not available.While I run:
Is this output related to COM ports (suggest me if I am going wrong)?
How can I check COM port status? How to enable it under my laptop?
THough I can see it under lsbusb:

If your host actually has a serial port, it should be visible in the boot messages:
dmesg | grep -i tty
console [tty0] enabled
serial8250: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
serial8250: ttyS1 at I/O 0x2f8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A
00:0a: ttyS1 at I/O 0x2f8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A
00:0b: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
If you are unable to use a serial port, it may have permissions restricted to root users.
To make the changes persist across reboots, you can add udev rules to set the desired permissions. I think this configuration is highly distro-specific, and I am not well acquainted with the system, so I'll let others flesh that out of necessary. None of this stuff has changed for a long time, and upgrading an OS for a simple issue like this seems a bit extreme, to me.

NOT when it comes to Fedora
fedora is a FAST development and a R&D testing distro
a new version is released EVERY 6 MONTHS
and a version ONLY HAS 13 MONTHS of support
fedora 11 hit it's END OF LIFE last month
if you ARE going to use fedora THEN YOU MUST STAY CURRENT
that means doing a fresh install every 6 months when a new version is released
-- that is a lot of work --
Hmm. I've been using expired versions of Fedora for years. As I write this, I am using a Fedora 9 host. So far, the sky hasn't fallen. What horrendous state of affairs do you think I should be anticipating?
for me its /dev/ttyACM0. Open your /dev/ folder and connect your phone in COM mode. Look out for any new files arriving, like i have a new "/dev/ttyACM0". Sure there are other more elegant ways to do it. Now if you are trying to connect to Internet do a "$ln /dev/ttyACM0 /dev/modem" , and use /dev/modem for connections.
