I have a PCI card with two serial ports. Apparently openSuSE recognizes
them, but I need to mount them explicitly. I want them to be mounted at
boot. Of the three ports, I want one to be for a UPS, and another for a
fax modem.

# dmesg | grep tty

Hello Stan!
It seems we are running the same thing there: 3 Serial ports:

SRV01 # dmesg | grep tty
serial8250: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
00:0f: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
0000:03:00.0: ttyS1 at I/O 0xec00 (irq = 19) is a 16550A
0000:03:00.0: ttyS2 at I/O 0xec08 (irq = 19) is a 16550A

One for Serial Console, one for the FaxModem and one for the UPS.
I've added my brand new 2 serial port card 10 minutes ago, rebooted
and just run the "faxaddmodem" of Hylafax...
I just told to this script to use the ttyS1and everything has went smooth!!
I had no need to run any command to "mount" the new com ports...

Maybe you can try to check if the modem is working...
Or if you have a nullmodem cable and you are running, like me, a
serial console, you can connect the ttyS0 (I assume is for the
console) to the ttyS1 (that I assume is for the faxmodem) and see if
the com port is working fine! Use minicom for this test.

I wish you a good luck!!
