Serial port programmingon LInux is pretty much like serial port
programming on any other Unix(-like) system.

There is (or used to be, I don't know if it's been kept up to date) a
HOWTO (or maybe a mini-HOWTO) on LInux serial port programming.

Not sure where you can find it online, but if you are unable to find
it, email me off the list and I'll send you my (OLD, 1997) copy.
