i don't know the reason but is there a serial port conflict? if you try
to look into the /etc/irda/drivers file and set the right port for for
it. and also the right irq and dma channel on your bios and also the
right /dev/ttySxx port to your right irq and dma on /etc/serial.conf
hope this will help. sorry i no more ideas since i haven't used my irda
a long time.
