If you do not have PCMCIA slots, then with one serial port the only thing
you can do is to network the computers using the -Loop feature. To use
this, you will need to build a set of Y-cables, as I have yet to find a
Y-cable that does the trick.
If you have PCMCIA slots, you can add in extra COM ports so you can also
have radio control, packet input etc.
But for M/S, the most critical thing is to have the logs in synch so you
know which mults to chase.... so use your one COM port for networking.
