I have no FIR in my AMIBIOS. Only a Serial IR that I set to auto 
for the IRQ/MEM  settings.

I have made a test

 	SIR disabled       : no ttyS03 detected
	SIR enabled (auto) : ttyS03 detected 

So, the ttyS3 seems to be my SIR :-)

	ttyS0 is my db9 serial connector
	ttyS1 is my PCMCIA modem card 
	ttyS2 is unknown but I have a winmodem in my laptop !:-)
	      it's not configured in linux but !
	ttyS3 seems to be my SIR

"irda start" works if I put the irdadev to ttyS0 !:-|

Do I have to insmod other driver like  	
  - toshoboe.o
  - smc-ircc.o
  - nsc-ircc.o
