 I have also had success with Belkin USB serial port adapters.  Although my
HP Pavilion Laptop is locking up when it is present.  I had one working just
fine in a Compaq desktop for months.

I also have CompUSA brand pci serial/parallel board in the desktop and have
three serial ports currently active.

I bought a cheapie 2s1p PCI card from CompUSA a year ago and it has worked
fine ever since. It uses one shared IRQ for all functions. Gave me a second
LPT port and serial ports 3&4. $20 or so at CompUSA.
