I have the ira-3 running with the hauppauge grey remote on Fedora.  You 
don't mention that you've created a new lircd.conf for the ira-3.  It will 
not work with the happauge receiver lircd.conf.  You need to use irrecord to 
create it.  So with lircd not running try something like this:

irrecord --device=/dev/ttyS0 --driver=irman <filename>

This creates a new lircd.conf which you put in the normal place.

Also make sure you have the correct permissions on /dev/ttyS0 (use chmod or 
chgrp or whatever it takes to give your myth user full permission.)

The only other thing I needed to do was add:

LIRCD_OPTIONS="--driver=irman --device=/dev/ttyS0"

To /etc/sysconfig/lircd (which may be different for Knoppmyth I dunno).

As it turns out I have never (yet) figured out how to get the ira3 working 
as well as the hauppauge receiver.  It works but sometimes I need to hit 
buttons two-three times.  If anyone else is successfully using this 
configuration please post your lircd.conf... here is mine:

# Please make this file available to others
# by sending it to <lirc at bartelmus.de>
# this config file was automatically generated
# using lirc-0.8.0(irman) on Sat Dec  9 11:11:17 2006
