I've been trying for hours to get freebsd to recognize my modem.
I have a SupraExpress 336.  It is currently set on (according to
windows95) com3:IRQ5-3e8.  I don't have anything on com2 and my
mouse(logitech cordless mouseman) is on com1.  

I look at the boot log and it says something to the affect of 
sio2 not on 3e8...

Then when I get to the part of the install where I have to connect to
the ftp site, I do the following:
(now when I type...I can't see anything happen)
atdt4294339(I was told to type this...atdt(isp #))
nothing happens
So I type ~.
set dial 4294339
dial attempt 1 of 1
dial failed (it times out...and doesn't actually do anything)

Reboot and email you guys.
I would really like to get this up and running.  My friend has linux on
his box and I'm trying to get this working to compare the two systems.
