did the modules load successfully? I have only used 1 system that
used the lt_modem/lt_serial drivers and I had to use isapnp to get
it working(it was an ISA device on that laptop, most of them are PCI),
in my case I believe the driver automatically mapped itself to one
of the serial ports
(repeat for ttyS1, ttyS2, ttyS3)
and see what it says, the best clue is the UART it detects, if it
says UNKNOWN then it doesn't detect a port there(most likely), also
try specifying i/o and irq addresses for the modules and using setserial
to hard configure a port for the addresses you specify(be sure they
are not in use by checking /proc/interrupts and /proc/ioports)
