Hmmm. This leads me to the Question: Where _did_ you get this beast,
Serial57600? Is it different (or even better?) from High Speed Serial
Templates by Ken Walker?

Me too. Wonderful news, if it becomes true for me, too...

Now i waited for two long weeks that you say where & what to hack in there,
so *please* say it! If you think it's rather not for the faint of heart,
then private EMail's OK.

>familiar with the registry, I'd say forget it ;-)

yeah, familiar enough. Juz' export your "hack" in a .reg-file and show it,

Which looks like *very* sound advice, thanx a lot! I will do this in any
case before i try next time.

So, Laurent, please tell us the whereabouts of this Serial57600 and what to
do to the registry in detail, if you don't mind :-).
