Good morning:

Here is the output from dmesg:

com0 at isa0 port 0x3f8-0x3ff irq 4: ns16550a, working fifo
com1 at isa1 port 0x2f8-0x2ff irq 3: ns16550a, working fifo

There is no discussion of PnP in the manual. There setup 
instructions for a number OS's. The discussion for UnixWare
does not seem relevant.

Thanks again.
