Hi Harry...
tnx for your e-mail on the setserial problem....
I should have put more info...
the MB is a MSI 7500 that only has one physical serial port on the
backplane....there is NO pins on the board to connect another serial
port lead too.....have double checked this many times...and have checked
the boards manual..none mentioned...hence the need for the extra 2 port
card...
I use the ttyS0 serial port to drive a PTT (press to talk) interface on
an Amateur Radio HF transsciever for transmitting digital modes....the
software will only work on ttyS0 or ttyS1....
As i said the 2 port card works well under Fedora Core One and also
Debian Sarge both configured for ttyS2 on port 0xd400 and irq 5 but cant
find a way to do this in Mandrake.....

Thanks again for your interest
