The Bitsurfr Pro ISA uses a virtual com port for the 2nd B.
This means that unless there's a linux driver for it you'll only get 1B.
This goes for NT as well.
Basically I'm SOL using the linux box as a firewall. Even though I could
live with 1B, I'm paying for 2 and I like to get my money's worth.
I wondered why it was going for $60 at that auction.
