     26`cereal` is particularly useful on machines with large numbers of serial ports, acting as a console server.  How can you make it so that your machine has a large number of serial ports for a reasonable price?

     28 * [http://www.lavalink.com/index.php?id=232 the Octopus-550], an 8-port PCI card.  These work well under linux, and CMRG has lots of experience with them.  search around a bit for the best prices.  Highly recommended.
     29 * [http://www.serialgear.com/8-Port-Serial-Adapter-USBG-8X-RS232.html 8-port serial adapter] -- this claims to use the Prolific chipset (pl2303), which has robust driver support in Linux.  Doesn't require external power or a hub for 8 ports, which could be nice.  Never tried it, though.
