Hi all!
Thanks, Stephen Isard, for mknod and boot- answer - both worked!
Again a question about installing a (serial) multiport card on my industrial PC: Ther card comes with a linux 2.0.3x driver - BUT the driver has to be compiled, so there is a "make install" command, which invoces a (or several) c-files, that want to be compiled, ... and several error messages appear on the screen. I read, that the gcc compiler is just for educational purposes, anyway. So I don't have a chance, to get a driver for my card? Is another way, to get the driver driving?
Does anyone have a serial multiport card with a mulinux system - that works? Which?
Thanks for help!!!

I want to install several serial devices (modem and measurement), so I bought a MOXA Smartio C104H ISA card with 4 more serial ports. I downloaded a linux driver, compatible for kernel 2.0.3x - so should work with mulinux.

(I tried, coppying it from my SuSE linux PC - doesn't work - ... and the gcc addon can't translate the mknod.c sourcecode from
