Incorporating obscure hardware.

How do I get a serial port card recognised
on an already built machine?

When YaST builds a machine it notices it
and it is there in a hardware probe
(YaST - Hardware - Hardware Information)

When I put it into another (Suse9.2 or SLES) machine
hwscan doesn't see it nor does Hardware Information.
Worse still, it doesn't work.

I suppose I'm asking if I can trigger a deeper probe than hwscan?

TIA,
michaelj
