If you have a PS/2 mouse, you can disable COM1 in your Device Manager settings. Then select COM2 in the Roland setup page. Your modem will still use COM1, even though there will be a red X in your Device Manager page for COM1. (This is all true with Win98 and Win95.)
The COM3 and COM4 settings in my Roland driver are greyed out, as well, so I was unable to use them. Good luck.

: :Kevin,
: Thanks very much for the information. I've downloaded the Roland driver,
: and I'm now figuring out which com port to assign it to. It only
: works on 1 or 2, and both these ports in my PC
: Are already assigned to something else, and I get the conflict message. (Although
: in the install, the driver lists com 1-4 as choices.)
: I need to rearrange my modem, which is on com 2, and
: hopefully this will work.
