Success! Got modem working last night. Followed process suggested in http://www.idir.net/~gromitke/3cp5610.txt. this file suggests using '/cat/proc/pci' to determine correct IRQ & I/O port plus a specific form of the setserial command. In atddition, Poul Petersen's Linux guide - Modem setup gives input on how to set up '/usr/bin/minicom'.
Now, I need:
1.) Configuration file
2.) Autodialer
3.) Configure Netscape Navigator
Any help on this?

Just started Linux and was able to dial my ISP and connect via a minicom terminal screen long enough to be asked for UserID and Password. My normal Userid and/or password was not accepted and the line was dropped.

Have a look at wvdial and wvdial.dod (dial on demand). It's kind of nice as it sets up the ppp-up and stuff. I've only set it up a few times, but it's pretty solid. I had it on a firewall/masq box in a small office. It ran great for 7 months until someone in the office CHANGED the dial-up password and neglected to tell me. Took three hours to find the problem.

problem with wvdial

I tried wvdial, and it worked fine for a while
It got to a place where it said:
-
"Looks like a password prompt
Starting PPPD
PPP Daemon has died (exit code 1)"
-
I was then advised to look in /var/log/messages, where there are a gaggle of messages, none of which look like they might be appropriate. I looked in a file titled 'messages' and towards the end there was some cryptic stuff which follows:
"PPPD 2.3.11 started by rood UID 0
Couldn't attach tty to PPP unit 0, invalid argument
tcsetattr: invalid argument.
-
Does any of this relate?
What do I do next?

try
Code:
 tail -50 /var/log/messages
That will give you the last 50 lines from your messages log file.

Have you made any changes in /etc/wvdial.conf?
