I have a US Robotics isa modem in COM3 (the good one, no the winmodem) and I don't know how to make work on slack, I'm using MDK right now and it works perfectly (I just had to select ttyS2, no extra configuration). someone told me that isapnp can solve the problem, but I just dont get how (I'm a complete newbie). a kernel compilation may be the answer? if it is, what should I look for especifically when I configure the new kernel?
apparently everything's ok with the jumpers, in MDK it works fine and I tried it with Vector linux and it also worked well. I suspect it can be related with PNP stuff (I have a isa soundcard and it gave some trouble too in slack) but im not sure
