Does anyone have a recommendation for brand of PCI I/O card with two serial
RS232C ports?  I need to add two more ports to one of my logging/rig
computers.  Fry's has several brands and types, some with parallel ports,
too.  The Internet has a spectrum of cards.  Maybe any will work fine, but
if anyone has experience they can share it may save me some grief.

DOS or Windows? IRQ sharing or not?

In my Windows XP environment, I have had good luck with the CompUSA "house" brand (FMI) 2S/1P card:


This card uses standard NetMOS drivers. It's an IRQ-sharing card. It's significantly cheaper than name-brand (SIIG etc.) cards.
