I made enough money off that - October 1983 - that I bought my
first Unix system. A few months later I parted out the PC
that I had built in early 1983 - and got the the above job - and
got a '286 with Microport's SysV.2 - where you had to add users
by manually editing password file, etc. I never went back.
Don't know why you shared interupts and polling addresses in MS
doesn't mean it would work well - that's too limiting. You could
just say MS doesn't work well :-)
I'll not call that an error, but more of an oversight. PCI withQuote:>>He needs at least two more IRQs - in addition the standard IRQ3 and

I've seen very few systems without the parallel port in use.Quote:>I should have phrased that sentence to state plural, addresses and

I'm new to this group, and could not find one directly relating, so here
I've got a PC in which I need to install some extra serial ports. Standard
ISA bus cards. No brainer, hardware wise. Software wise is another
How do I get XENIX to recognize extra, installed serial ports? What
command/configs do I use?
