I would add, "works" is defined here as:
Win2kPro, Tecra 8000 Laptop, XP Pro SP4.
Hyperterm, APRS+SA using a Garmin 45 on the USB and a tnc on the "real"
Delorme's Topo4 and Street Atlas 9, using a Garmin 45 on either USB or
"real" serial port.
VX-1R programming software from Yaesu Via RT systems, both types of ports.
Probably a few others uses, those are the ones off the top of my head.
