How do you work it out?  I had an add-on serial card that did work at
one stage, at ttyS10.  Now I don't seem to be able to find it anywhere.
Is there something that I can look at the IO details and work out which
ttyS device it is, without playing trial and error?

(Currently testing FC5, but still running FC4, if that's important.)
