First I guess I should ask if anyone knows for sure that the PS/2 Model 55sx
has a 16550 UART in it's serial port. My understanding was that all PS/2's
including and above the Model 50 had a 16550 built in. If this is true why
doesn't OS/2 recognize it? I do:
and OS/2 tells me that both BUFFER= and ENHANCED= are invalid for my serial
device! I think I remember reading that the first 16550's had some
problems, is there a way to distinguish the bad 16550's from the good ones?
Has anyone else gotten their m55sx to use the 16550? If it is indeed a bad
16550 will IBM replace it? I've had the machine for about 1.5 years so the
warranty is no longer there.
Any info greatly appreciated,
