Joy Stick Configuration

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!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
