I thought the idea was to use a ISA card for the FDC and parallel port.
I'd like to see 16550s on the MB though. If for anything developent
reasons. How much is a dual 16550 UART? If the difference is small use
the SMC FDC37C665. In any case, I'd like IDE available in some for so I
can keep my HD.
FYI, UART information :
National Semi NS16C552V dual 16550 UART
Lots of 100 : $13.10
Sample quantities : $16.50
Package : 44 Lead Plastic Chip Carrier, about .65" X .65"
