1) You don't have to setup the "COM" ports (I'd guess /dev/ttyS2)
explicitly. Actually, saving/restoring the status of the serial
ports doesn't work well for PCMCIA controlled ports but
/etc/init.d/setserial which reads/sets /etc/serial.conf knows about
2) BUT your serial port has to work. (You're thinking "duh".) Your
PCMCIA card _shouldn't_ use any of the standard IRQs (3 & 4), so
sharing isn't a problem. I'm not on my laptop, so I can't check
whether you _need_ the serial module, I'd make sure however that
the kernel has access to it if necessary.
*Most importantly*: how old is your PCMCIA cs? Once upon a time
serial ports didn't work well and upgrading helped all people who
complained on this list!
I've probly missed it -- what versions are you running? Debian,
PCMCIA cs etc.
