Re: kernel version 2.2.16-22


The original RS232C protocol used that 25-pin D-connector with
many signals 
exchanged.  At some point, IBM stripped it down to a few signals
on a 9-pin 
D-connector.  Many manufacturers saved a few pennies by leaving
out unused 
pins (unimplemented signals or redundant grounds) when providing
a 25-pin 
D-commector for the serial connection.

If you cannot easily find the respective pinouts for the 25- and
RS232C connectors, email me and I will send a copy to you.

Yes, you could connect your two computers together at their
serial ports 
with a "null-modem" cable and send your files that way.  You also
use one of the many free or shareware programs to split your file
several "floppy-size" files.  Usually, you need to use the same
program at both ends -- to split for sending, and to recombine at
receiving end.  Often, I just use the "copy-concatenate" facility
of the 
shell to recombine, being careful to match things up correctly.
