Hi friends, 

My notebook (IBM Thinkpad) has only one serial port. It has a dual PCMCIA
port ( 2 Type 2 or 1 type 3) an 1 USB port. The OS is Win98.

My questions:

1, What is the best device to get additional COM ports ? A PCMCIA
Serial Extender? What brand ? What shall I look at when selecting one ?
3, Can I use the PCMCIA serial cards in MS-DOS mode ? 

Please respond directly and I will summarize to the reflector.

Thank you in  advance,
