Thank you very much.
i tried what you said, and likewise, it seems to have done the trick (frame errors
down from as much as 30-50% to 5% or less... and those are probably due to noisy
line or other problems). Performance is much same as windoze now (poor way to
measure it, but i'm happy ;-)
i'm not sure how it works either
(there was something on the modem howto
about divisors and the actual speed of your serial port, 115200 means divisor 1,
but if your port's top speed was 230.4k, that is the speed you would get (i.e. the
top speed), 57.6 is divisor 2... and so on. maybe i'm barking up the wrong tree)
