    I have looked and found nothing in the many pages of BIOS things but 
I could of missed it.

    I just wrote a short email to Biostar, the MB maker and hope to hear 
soon and see what they suggest. As of right now it seems that Fedora is 
sending it what it needs but it just does not work.

    This is from #setserial -a /dev/ttyS0:

[root at k5di ~]# setserial /dev/ttyS0 -a
/dev/ttyS0, Line 0, UART: unknown, Port: 0x03f8, IRQ: 4
        Baud_base: 115200, close_delay: 50, divisor: 0
        closing_wait: 3000
        Flags: spd_normal skip_test auto_irq

[root at k5di ~]#

This I think is good.
