15	Misc. notes for RISCom/8 serial driver, in no particular order :)
16	
17	1) This driver can support up to 4 boards at time.
18	   Use string "riscom8=0xXXX,0xXXX,0xXXX,0xXXX" at LILO prompt, for
19	   setting I/O base addresses for boards. If you compile driver
20	   as module use modprobe options "iobase=0xXXX iobase1=0xXXX iobase2=..."
21	
22	2) The driver partially supports famous 'setserial' program, you can use almost
23	   any of its options, excluding port & irq settings.
24	
25	3) There are some misc. defines at the beginning of riscom8.c, please read the 
26	   comments and try to change some of them in case of problems.
27	
28	4) I consider the current state of the driver as BETA.
29	
30	5) SDL Communications WWW page is http://www.sdlcomm.com.
31	
32	6) You can use the MAKEDEV program to create RISCom/8 /dev/ttyL* entries.
33	
34	7) Minor numbers for first board are 0-7, for second 8-15, etc.
