When I try to dial, my system locks up.  It happens with two completely different modems (and those modems work on another computer with win95).  Is there something I can do?
(I have a K6-2 350MHz, 64MB Ram, FIC PA-2013 Motherboard).

What other hardware do you have?
Scanner? Printer? Network card?
What manufacturer/model of modem?
Within "Control Panels", look at the "properties" of the modem,
and see which "resources" are assigned to the modem, and to other hardware-devices.

The reason for this is because it is conflicting with a irq that another device is using. The best way to fix this is to go into CMOS and disable COM2. then set the modem jumpers on COM2...
