[ILUG] 56K PnP Modem and Linux

I was wondering could someone help me out with a problem I have been
having. I recently bought a Genius 56K modem (PCI) to replace a old ISA
one. I have com2 disabled in the BIOS and have also told the BIOS that
I have a non-PnP OS.
Basically my problem is that I can't talk to the modem at all ! I have
win98 on the same machine (I know the work of Satan etc) and it reports that
the modem is installed and working fine. When I run the diags that came with
it it also reports that the modem is fine, however I can't dial out.
Anyway I was really just using win98 to tell me the IRQ and IO values for
it (irq 5 dff0-dff7, d800-d8ff). So in linux (RedHat 6.0) I used setserial
to set IRQ 5 for /dev/ttyS1 and also to set the port to 0xDFF0, but when I
then run setserial on /dev/ttyS1 it doesn't report a 16550A UART but just says
"unknown". Chat reports that it can't get the terminal i/o values, and when
I run minicom and type "at" which should I think give me an "ok" it just
Am I missing something really obvious here ? Also how do you use setserial
to set a range of values for the ioport ? It seems that it just allows you
to set one value. B.T.W when I run setserial on /dev/ttyS0 it gives me the
values I would expect.
Sorry for the long mail, and if anyone can give me some pointers or
suggestions I would be very grateful.
P.S If its possible could you cc me on your replys.
