/dev/ttyS2: No such file or directory

i am installin my 56k modem and i am following the instructions from and when i type "setserial /dev/ttyS2 uart 16550A port 0xb800 irq 5" it says "/dev/ttyS2: No such file or directory"

my modem is on port 3 on windows... so that makes it ttyS2, right?

im also running mandrake 8.2

If you're using devfs, some device names, including serial port names, have changed. Read this chapter of the Modem-HOWTO for more.
