Hello, thanks for your help

yes i added that port in config.opts, now when i removed it the /var/log/messages output is:

when i inserted fisrt my eth card and then modem the output is:

From this i logs i see that irq 3 is reserved for eth card, but why can't modem take up irq 9?

about the modem, i looked at database in www.o2.net/~gromitkc/winmodem.html but i didn't find my chipset listed, there were some similar chips e.g. RCDL56ACF 
without L at the and, and they had ? in cathegory box

thanks

The irq is fine.  Edit /etc/pcmcia/config.opts and comment out the
0x1000-0x17ff IO port window, and that may improve the situation.
