    I need 4 (or more !) serial ports running on a host and Virtual machines.
    There is actually a "4 ports Serial controller: NetMos Technology PCI 9845 Multi-I/O Controller (rev 01) " running " almost good" on a Suse 10.2 host.

    I have found a Moxa Smartio 8-Port Serial Card C168H/PCI on eBay but have not installed it yet!

    Does anyone have some experience with these cards or can recommend a 100% linux compatible pci to serial card.

    Great thanks for your helpfull comments.

    I followed instructions given by Moxa on a fresh & clean installed Fedora 9 machine.

    All 8 serial ports ttyM0 to ttyM7 are now running fine.

    Greetings to all.
