[RndTbl] modem problem

Red Hat 7.1 kernel 2.4.2-2 recognized
my modem and I had no problems with it.
It's an internal ISA GVC 5634 BTS 56K
set to PnP.
Red Hat 7.2 knows its there. I can see
it listed as unknown under hardware.
But 7.2 refuses to have anything to do 
with it. Using minicom, I contacted the
modem via ttyS2, but when I try to telephone:
minicom -d 9866722
I get a segmentation fault in both xterm
and on the command line.
I then created a link, ln -s /dev/ttyS2 modem
but it made no difference.
Maybe I'll reinstall 7.1 and try to find
out what it did that 7.2 is not doing.
   Anyone got any ideas?
