Unhappy Permissions??


Okay...I've got VMWare working with win98, but I want to run a program that works off of COM1, and I think I know what the problem is...I don't have the right permissions to COM1? (i think)

I have 2 other windoze drives that i'm accessing via VMWare, my printer doesn't show up either...I've already
changed the partitions for the printer but it still doesn't work...

Any ideas...please help

Can someone tell me what the linux name for COM1 is.. like I know hda, hdb etc, are harddrives..what's the name for the com ports??
