Didn't realize it cost THAT MUCH! I was able to get mine from some surplused
equipment at work. Maybe I'd better look around for more of these!

I have been using a "RocketPort" Multiport Serial Board from Comtrol
(http://www.comtrol.com). I give me 8 (or more) serial ports using 1
IRQ! I
have 10 serial ports (2 in the PC plus 8 on the board) and they all are
operational at the same time.
THAT'S $545 FOR THAT BOARD!!! Gee you could buy another computer for that!
