Serial devices on Slack

Hi, I'm trying to work with an external serial device and I can't get the system to recognize that it is there. Whenever I try to open /dev/ttyS0 in C I get a "No such device" error, so I attempted to run stty and setserial to see if I could set it up and they both give me the same error. The device is plugged in and it works in Windows with its Windows driver. Is there something I'm doing wrong? I'm running Slackware 9.1 with the 2.6.3 kernel.

Are you sure its ttyS0 and not another one like ttyS1?? I think if I remember correctly ttyS0 is like com1 in windows and ttyS1 com2 etc.

I think!
Maby someone else can confirm that.

Good luck!
