Hi Scott,

To the best of understanding, isapnp tweaks the settings according to
what is in /etc/isapnp.conf during start-up.  If there are interrupt
(irq) conflicts or io address conflicts, then you may need to adjust
these by hand, however.

Are you sure the SupraExpress 56i is a WinModem? A spec page:


says that it works with Win 3.1 which would put it into the normal,
internal modem category.

If you are not able to make it work after a little while, the exact
error messages, your "/etc/isapnp.conf" and/or the output of "pnpdump"
would aid greatly in diagnosing and correcting the problem.
