Not directly, but on the other hand it shouldn't be to hard to write
a driver for it if you're the least into C programming.  I bet it's
16550 ICs which are well-known (easy to get docs for).  It shouldn't
be to hard to find the chips base address and IRQ from the ADOS
driver.  The parallel port however, I'm more doubtful about.  Perhaps
they've used  a PC -compatible chip, the it should be easy to write
a driver for that port as well.
