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.

I have just installed Mandrake 9.0 on my computer. I had to install setserial after the install. Now when I try to connect to the internet my modem thinks it's ttys3 and my computer doesn't recognize any ttys3 If I open the device folder I have a ttys4 which is where mandrake thinks my modem is and ttys0 which is my mouse. Every time I start My computer, it scans the serial ports and can't find ttys3 so it assigns the modem to ttys4. But the dev modem folder links to ttys3 which isn't there. I can't just assign ppp to link to ttys4 because unless I go through the setup wizard I can't assign my modem to ttys4, It doesn't go that high in the device tab. and everytime I restart the computer scans and reassigns my modem to ttys3 because that's where it thinks it should be. So I have to rerun the wizard to reassign the correct serial port. Now I can either change the port designation of my modem which I don't now how to do or I can create a ttys3 folder in the dev directory which I don't know how to do. I need help so any advice would be apperciated.
