I'm running a builtin modem on a new PC.

It works fine with win95.

It says in windows:
com4 port 0x2e8 irq 12

I don't see it in autodetect (its a shark modem).

I've done some setserial commands, but to no avail...

I've tried this:
[root@dw /tmp]# setserial /dev/cua3 uart 16550 port 0x2e8 irq 12
[root@dw /tmp]# cat </dev/cua3
cat: -: I/O error
[root@dw /tmp]# ls -l /dev/cua3
crw-rw-rw- 1 root uucp 5, 67 Dec 31 1979 /dev/cua3
[root@dw /tmp]#

What's the magic incantations to get it to work (its a Hayes
compatible modem).
