The FASY drivers are drop in replacements for the 386/ix drivers and
work excellent with 16550AFN chips.  The latest version is available
here on nstar.

not really - I am currently running with a Computone Intelliport -
and I must admit it took a couple of months to get the correct drivers
working with one of the 3 sets of proms they mailed me - but for around
$500 6 smart ports that can products 1650 cps without any kind of load
on the CPU isn't bad..
