    How do you need to access the serial port, and what are you

    GIVEIO.SYS driver, described in a Dr. Dobbs Journal May 1996 article "Direct
    Port I/O and Windows NT" written by Dale Roberts
    available from:
    http://www.cs.ucr.edu/~eblock/pages/pictools/giveio.html
    or

    You will also need Paula Tomlinson's program LOADDRV, described in her May
    1995 article in Windows/DOS Developer's Journal (now Windows Developer's
    Journal).

    Unlike many other devices, there are very few features of the serial port
    you can't get at using the native win32 interfaces. For some examples, see
    the program I wrote while trying to figure out the interface of COM2 pins on
