Dear George:

I've abandoned its supplied driver software.

Using GtkTerm, I have sent test text fro my PC to my old DOS palmtop.

That's what I'm working with.

GtkTerm's default port is /dev/ttyS0. I configured it for 2400 bps, 8 
data bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit.

> You could post the build and source code for  RedHat driver and maybe someone could tell you necessary changes to allow it to compile under Ubuntu, but I think that would be a large task.

I want to edit GtkTerm's default config file, setting the port to 
/dev/ttyUSB0. But I can't recall *where that file is*!
