	Ok, thanks. Fortunately I hit this post first, and didn't have to 
guess.

	I went through five machines, adding my userid to the dialout 
group for each. I think it did half the job: with my old etrex vista 
connected to the serial port, TOPOUS2008 (on one machine, so far) finds 
the GPS -- but then fails to transfer anything, in either direction.

	That's an improvement over not finding it, to be sure; but I need 
one more ...

	I did run through the list of groups, looking for other likely 
candidates, but failed to spot any. (My userid was already in uucp.)

I have precious (very precious!) little idea where up is.
