Again, no DOS is limiting the capabilities of the UART, I don't have a 
working setup anymore since my last move, but I doubt that any DOS mode 
command is limited to just 9600 baud. And if push comes to shove, just 
use any terminal program to set the UART to a higher speed. Or use the 
FreeDOS mode command, it's the tool that would be limitation, not any 
form of DOS...

Just did only a very quick Google search and M$ themself list that least 
an option to set the baud rate to 19200 baud (speed parameter "19").
