I had the same problem with Device allreay in use. This is what I did on
my Mac 7100/80.

1. Plugged the cameria into the printer port.
2. Went to the Chooser and turned off APPLETALK.
3. Selected the fax for my printer.
4. Restarted the computer.

Then the system worked fine. I tried to use it on my power book but I
couldn't use the modem port. My power book has a built in modem, but it
ties up the port anyway. (Darn it Apple!)

Lighten up Brad. Now try this and tell us if it works.
