Thanks Doc. 

Problem 1: new debian install from cd caused loss of serial ports.
           I copied and upgraded a partition of my current debian, 3.0
           Problem repeated.

Solution: ask for answers but stick with old version
          But no answers came.

Problem 2, the conflicts, started when "backport" support for older
versions stopped 

To my limited knowledge, unless I need a Debian upgrade that leaves my
ports working

I'll stop there for now. Looking for the log records on one of about 8
partitions, no luck yet.

Thanks again.
