	1. sound baster 16: 
Have you tried to get it to work as root? If it does work for root then I 
would suspect permissions.
	2. boca external modem 33.6:
I guess it is working under MS Win so there is no cable problems. What do you 
mean by "not working" - have you tried to connect to the Internet and it did 
not work? Have you tried it with minicom?
Are you sure this is not an IRQ problem? Does the output of
	setserial -ga /dev/ttyS*
make sense? 

	3. display problems:
Which is your video card? How did you configured X? You might email your 

	4. Did I missed something?

BTW: Since potato has just been released I am not sure if this is a good idea 
to mess with Corel Linux.
