Hi Peter I did make my user name karl a member of uucp but it still can't use /dev/ttyS0 for some reason.
Hmm. Group changes usually require you to log out and log back in again to take effect. Have you tried this?

Also it complains that /dev/dsp is busy and can't be used. Does that make sense?
/dev/dsp is for the deprecated OSS/Free sound drivers ("Open Sound System"). OSS/Free had no method of mixing sound if the hardware does not support it. Thus, if one program is using the sound device, it blocks sound I/O from other programs. Its successor, ALSA ("Advanced Linux Sound Architecture") does sound mixing by default (in hardware if its capable, otherwise through a software system called dmix), which means that this is no longer a problem in most - if not all - cases.
