anyone know what's the status of serial port on the NEC?

this is my config entry (copied from GENERIC):

  com*    at vrip? addr 0x0c000000 size 0x20 intr 9 pwctl PWCTL_COM0

and i get:

  com0 at vrip0 addr 0xc000000-0xc000007 intr 9: ns16550a, working fifo

from dmesg, but can't get any tip or cu sessions to work... ideas?

also, is it possible to get at the built-in modem?

btw, does anyone know of a CE program that probes for correct hardware
addresses etc?
