Modem - G4 Powermac - issues

Hi All

Im having issues setting up a dial-up connection with my G4 400 PowerMac on Fedora 4 test 2

ive tried kppp, the internet wizard and wvdial but no luck

in wvdial i get the following errors:

--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.54.0
--> Cannot open /dev/ttyS0: Input/output error
--> Cannot open /dev/ttyS0: Input/output error
--> Cannot open /dev/ttyS0: Input/output error
ive tried the following

in UbuntuPPC the modem work fine on /dev/ttyS0

from tldp.org
17.23 "Input/output error" from setserial, stty, pppd, etc.

This means that communication with the serial port isn't working right. It could mean that there isn't any serial port at the IO address that setserial thinks your port is at. It could also be an interrupt conflict (or an IO address conflict). It also may mean that the serial port is in use (busy or opened) and thus the attempt to get/set parameters by setserial or stty failed. It will also happen if you make a typo in the serial port name such as typing "ttys" instead of "ttyS".
Any help would be greatly appreciated
