I think it is a Windows thing: Using the same cable, unixnpi in Linux has
no problems connecting at 115200, but my (not extremely optimised, because
rarely used) Windows 95 installation regularly times out even at 9600.

I'm now experimenting with BasiliskII in Linux (I have to admit I got a
ROM image off and old Quadra that's collecting dust on a mate's attick -
would that be violating the Apple copyrights?), but up till now I don't
seem to be able to get the ethernet connetction going.
