Question mandrake 9 setserial on startup


I have a 2 port serial card which I have sucessfull got to work. I have done this by using the setserial command.
I have a need for the serial card to be set up on startup using the seterial command.
I have tried editing /etc/rc.d/rc.local and adding the command setserial ...... , but it dosent seem to work.
Another thing is I can only use setserial as root to setup a port, is this part of the problem

Thanks in advance for any help on this matter.

That is the correct place to put setserial commands. Check for typos. Line in /etc/rc.d/rc.local should look something like this:
setserial /dev/ttyS2 uart 16550A irq 5 port 0xd400
