Sorry guy, I made myself look dumb with that one. My question was as clear as mud. I know how to get around in debug. My problem (which I should have made much clearer in my question) is:
In Hardware Devices my resources for com 2 are shown as EA000000-EA0000FF. To find this location in debug, I have tried EA00:0000 using the "d" command and can't find any hex but zeros. This puts me in the position of not being sure I am looking in the right place for the result. My exact question should be "Is EA000000 = EA00:0000 or not?"
Nothing is hooked to either com 1 or com 2. If my drivers were working right, the PCI soft modem should be somehow hooked to com 2 internally. I don't use com 1 for anything. When I first loaded the Agere software I forced the com to be one and I got write fault errors. When I reloaded, it loaded com 2 and then I could send to com 2 but got nothing like an OK back. Using the modem page, diagnostics--more info, it comes back saying the modem is not responding.
I now have the Agere using com 3 but it didn't change a thing. I then inserted the PCI bus information into the registry but that didn't change anything either. Even though 98 now has info in the registry about which device to send on, I am not sure it is sending anything. It may take a command to make PCI do something and I don't know how to do that.
I've been writing threads in 2 spots in Daniweb, chatting with 2 different guys. It's a pain to check each place each time I come on so I'll be on Hardware only from now on. See my latest entry on missing vcomm.vxd over there.
