dont trust that infomration it can be flawed.  the kernel just spits out
what is standard for those serial ports it does not detect conflicts or
even the right IRQ at times (it tells me COM3 is IRQ4 but when infact it
is IRQ9 on my machine)  Check the BIOS, hardcode the IRQ and I/O address
if possible as well as hardcoding the addresses on the modem if possible,
and if you have to use setserial to change the parameters of the
configuration.  i have to do this for my modem on IRQ9.  this is an IRQ
conflict almost certainly, if not an IRQ conflict probably an I/O address
