    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

Pricing :

Lots of 100 : $13.10
Sample quantities : $16.50

Package : 44 Lead Plastic Chip Carrier, about .65" X .65"
