My serial ports are recognized correctly, it's just the modem that's
not.  Is there a way to check the configuration of the kernel that is
running (ie something in /proc), or are you saying install the kernel
source and apply the debian patches?  If the debian kernels do not have
isapnp compiled as an option will the isapnp tools still work?  I assume
they would.
