actually it won't. All I'm doing is making the one available com port
that is connected BE COM1 -- base address, irq, everything. Linux
won't know. Linux will use ttyS0 and
as far as it is concerned, nothing is out of the ordinary. It all
looks like COM2. COM1 is not even connected to anything on this

I looked at both ways and this appears (to me) to be the best. It's
also what is done on v2.
