Hello guys,

my system: 8.0-release i386
my question: Is there a way to manually rescan the com devices ?
reason: yesterday I added a USR external modem on one com port and the
system did not detect it until a reboot. Is this normal ?

btw, is there a way to manually detect newly added hardware ? something like
"cfgmgr" or "devfsadm" ?
