I have found the solution to my problem , it was my new Optical Mouse !
I did another query using the command fuser /dev/ttyS0 and it came up with
the output of :
usr/sbin/inputattach -ms3 /dev/ttySo --daemon
Recently I upgraded my mouse from a standard PS/2 ball wheel mouse to a PS/2
Optical wheel mouse and selected the mouse type of ms intellimouse and
there was no problems until I tried to dial into my ISP.
To fix the problem I ran kudzu again and configured the mouse to a plain
generic PS/2 wheel mouse and everyting seems to work OK.
I rebooted the machine to make sure and when I did a fuser /dev/ttyS0 I get
no daemons running.
Thanks to everybody who helped to find a solution to a problem.
True Multitasking is having three computers and a chair with wheels.
