	I'm a new user to the netbsd alpha port. I own a dec 3000 / 300 lx
(turbochannel). I recently switched to netbsd 1.3.3 from digital unix. The
alpha has no monitor therefore I had to set it up using a serial terminal &
 a null modem cable. After I set it up & hardware jumpered it back to its
default console setting & booted it back up. Everything works fine, until I
hooked a modem up to the serial port. Not long after netbsd boots the DTR
light comes on on the modem & also the RD & TD lights stay on. Once netbsd
has finished booting I can <sometimes> connect to a remote modem, but when
the connection is established this modem just pumps garbage to the remote
one. I tried changing /etc/ttys because I thought the port baud rate might
be locked at 9600 or something but that wasnt it. I have also tried
rabuilding all devices in /dev to no avail. It has to be software because
the modem is fine until netbsd boots. The modem isnt faulty because it gets
used often on a linux box that I have. Any suggestions welcome.
