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:
insmode ./serial_cs.ko
  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
results :
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,
