I can look into getting on livecd irc channel tomorrow.
I went through the routine again with new instruction to:
modprobe pcmcia first and then do:
and this time successfully:) Looks like that was the trick to get that
in, but I'm not seeng any change in ttyS[0-3] and dialing out shows same
timeout on ttyS0,
Can't get terminal parameters: Input/output error on ttyS[1-3]
I checked all the ways I did before and see no changes in anything.
Does something have to be restarted , like some the /etc/init.d/pcmcia I
have in RH9?
Where would you look for pcmcia serial assignment to show up?
# insmod ./serial_cs.ko (not a sound, thought it didn't work but...)
# lsmod (the full list, divisions show phases)

I have saved the serial_cs module on the hda for later reuse. I'm
thinking maybe I still need the pcmcia-cs utility. I don't have any
of the init files in place and I think they come from that. Maybe I
could track where everything goes from that and reinsert after each
boot. (oh boy) But I don't know. What do you think of that?
Thanks for all the help, interesting explorations for me,
