Thanbks so much for the help on this!

I have now made the devise:

And here is what I have in my kernel conf file:

device          puc
options COM_MULTIPORT

# Serial (COM) ports
device          sio0    at isa? port IO_COM1 flags 0x10 irq 4
device          sio1    at isa? port IO_COM2 irq 3
device          sio2    at isa? disable port IO_COM3 irq 11
device          sio3    at isa? disable port IO_COM4 irq 11
device          sio4    at isa? disable port IO_COM3 irq 11
device          sio5    at isa? disable port IO_COM4 irq 11

Which is probably wrong. I must have tried 20 deifferent things since
yesterday afternoon :-(

And here is the output of dmesg:

So, it looks to me like something is still not right.

Am I understnading you to say that I don't need any (nonstandard) sio
entries in my kernel config file? If that's the case, I must have a basic
misunderstanding (which is certainly possible). I thought the puc driver
was a "bridge" driver that allowed the sio driver(s) to be connected to
serial ports on PCI based cards. Is this incorect?

Again, thnaks VERY much for helping me with this!
