It created a link from /dev/modem to /dev/ttyS3
but, apparently, /dev/ttyS3 is *not* a serial device.

When booting, the system tries to set /dev/ttyS3, /dev/ttyS0, /dev/ttyS1 and 
but fails.  None of these messages show up in /var/log/messages or 
setserial does not recognize any of these as serial devices.
I don't think I have access to *any* of my serial ports.
