    Let me ammend this by saying......

    I used to run Gerber equipment with a GERBER serial cable......
    I never had to change it......there should be no reason why I couldn't
    get a regular new serial.....I was just in GERBER mode.
    Everything runs now.....the BIOS thing still has me stumped.

    I decided to check the BIOS and the serial port was "disabled".
    The day before it was working fine.
    It just up and changed itself.
