:It's there to make sure the software settings agree with the hardware
:settings. You set the hardware *first* and then use the control panel to
:tell Windows what you've done. So, it's still up to you to make sure there
:are no hardware conflicts. That's why people are looking forward to
:Plug'n'Play systems, which do things like resolve hardware conflicts
:automatically, pretty much, kinda sorta.
Nope. Well sorta, but only for certain brain-dead programs and devices.
Almost all modern programs have their own setup for the port info, and
just ignore the Win control panel settings (even the Win terminal doesn't).
Unless you are using something off of the mainstream, you can ignore the
Control Panel port settings.
Now, just when I got done saying that, I need to mention that Trumpet has an
option to read *some* of the comm parameters from the Windows control
panel...some of the parameters are not changable in Trumpet (parity bits,
stop bits, ...), so if your ISP uses some odd setup, Trumpet gives you the
option to read them from Windows.
