No, as far as I know it is on Com 4.  That's the info reported in Win98

I found a utility last night on the net, but haven't tried it yet.  Anyone 
ever use this one before?  I might add that they have a page on their 
website that reviews over 30 serial cards, including cards with up to 16 
ports.  There are many cards listed with 4 - 8 ports.
