I have not been able to get my RedHat (4.1 or 4.2) distribution to see my Joy Stick port.

1. I have an "unknown" I/O card with the Game port disabled.
2. A SB 32 PnP card with a JS pluged into it's game port which works under DOS 7 and WIN95.
3. A 'cat' on '/proc/ioports' doesn't show the game port.
4. 'grep's of the Linux source have allowed me to locate any code that supports the JS port...

Help!
