Thank you Christoph, I correct the port number, I just entered the default value, now I understand better what it is asking me.

But, there is not working yet, theese are my steps:

1. apt-get install lirc lirc-modules-source
2. apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
3. apt-get install kernel-package
4. m-a update,prepare
5. dpkg-reconfigure lirc-modules-source
   I select "sir" on "Drivers to build:"
   I select "other" on "Type of supported SIR device:"
   "0x3e8" on "SIR device I/O port:"
   "4" on "SIR device IRQ:"
6. m-a a-i -f lirc
7. dpkg -i /usr/src/lirc-modules-2.6.26-2-686_0.8.3-3+2.6.26-19_i386.deb
8. modprobe lirc_sir
   I get this output: "FATAL: Error inserting lirc_sir (/lib/modules/2.6.26-2-686/misc/lirc_sir.ko): Device or resource busy"

I try to restart the service but nothing. As you can see, I am using Debian, with Lenny stable repositories.

I have a MCE remote, this one:

Can you help me please? Thank you for all your help, it will be great control my laptop from bed.

Thanks again and best regards.

What is the reason that you configure it for a non-existant port?
io=0x3e8 irq=4 would make sense.
