I am trying to get my USRobotics 3CP5610 PCI Faxmodem to work with Redhad 7.0. One suggestion mentions "I got a 3com/usr 3cp5610 to work by adding the following to the startip scripts...exec setserial..."
How do I add something to the startup scripts?

well, u gotta know something bout the boot process.
after the kernel loads, it executes a few scripts.
the first one is /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit which will set up system-wide basics like hostname, networking, system checks, mounting disks/modules, etc. Then it executes /etc/rc.d/rc.local which will set smaller stuff like banners n such. After that, depending on the runlevel ure in (/etc/inittab) it will execute starting/killing daemons from the corresponding /etc/rc.d/rc#.d/.

Stuff like setserial's u best add towards the bottom of /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit, since its got to do with the system and needs only be run once at boot.
