eh, well, found out i had to unload the ltmodem drivers (winmodem
drivers -- lt_serial & lt_modem conflicts with irda services).  also,
the maejesto (sound card module) also conflicts. *basically* i had to
comment anything out in /etc/modules & /etc/modules.conf that i thought
would be auto-loaded on boot and stuff that i didn't need.

once done, the irdadump sang like a bird! the nokia 8290 start spurting
data into the irda port once i activated irda connection within the

well, to conclude, i also may have had a problem with the irda port on
the laptop. i had to jiggle it slighly as it may have not been firmly
seated/connected (loose connection to the irda port?).

yea, i don't expect most to understand my mubblings here as i'm new to
irda services and have *no idea* how irda works. the irda docs are
mainly meant for somebody who already *knows* how irda is suppose to
work. so i was pretty much lost as to what *is* suppose to happen.

yea. looks really really grim (if anything at all!)

however, gsmlib works like a dream! i just downloaded & uploaded my
phonebook from the nokia 8290 to laptop (gsmpb -s).  the tarballs can be
easily built into srpm/rpm format (rpm -ta gsmlib*.tar.gz). i also
grabbed a snapshot of gsmlib from ~20020630

here's a link for anybody else.

isdn service for isp service. (still researching this topic)
