I've gotton lirc to work on a Dell latitude d600. just set the irda / com
port in the bios, and compile the lirc_module for serial ports (lirc_sir),
and point it to the com port.
I needed to run setserial dev/ttyS1 uart none (i'm using com2, com1 is
ttyS0). works fine with a Sky remote control (i'm in the UK), but the
receiver is in such a poor position on the laptop that it's only useful for
hop this helps.
