Is that modem jumpered for a specific port & IRQ, or is it Plug & Pray?  I have
a Diamond SupraExpress 56i, though it is not Sp Intl, jumpered for COM4 (0x2e8)
IRQ 5, which works in DOS, also worked in OS/2 Warp 4 and Linux.  With Linux, I
used a setserial command so the modem would be recognized.  0x3e8 looks like
what is known in DOS as COM3.  I guess this would be /dev/ttyS2.
