There was apparently a problem with the initialization string used to
configure the serial ports.  I backed off to an older version and got
it to work for someone with a IIsi.  As soon as I figure out where the
problem actually is, I'll put a patched kernel up for general consumption,
along with patches to the 1.0 kernel source code.

If you wish to help with this, talk to Dave Holcomb
(  He's making a herculean effort to
organize the HOW-TOs and FAQ, etc.
