	Well, now I'm really buffaloed. I went looking through the menus 
for KVM (which I did not find), and in the process discovered that, God 
knows how or why, virtualbox and xen are also on this machine.

	Since I had seen a report that virtualbox could handle the app I 
need (Garmin's Topo US 2008), and I did have a launcher for it, I tried 
that first; but it requires a serial port, and virtual box says I don't 
have permission at /dev/ttyS0, which seems to be the path to use for com1.

	So color me bewildered. If I can find out how to launch KVM, I'll 
try that next ...
