cool - thank you!

I'm just sizing up/preparing for the new gumstix system so that, when it arrives, I can get started with it, kindof like reading the "manual" before I ever get it.

I've been thinking of using it as a status monitor for both intra-vpn and extra-vpn applications so that whenever I have to check up on the status of a database, or production system, I can do so through the gumstix/samsung monitor/etc., in coordination with bluetooth DUN through my cellphone (I'm a QA guy/coder that basically has to keep up on this stuff, and since I spend my days in perl lately, writing admin tools, etc., gumstix seems like the perfect fit).

It is used for talking with the bluetooth chip, if you have one on the
motherboard. Otherwise it can be used for whatever you like.

Some connex versions used HWUART to talk to the bluetooth module, but
I'm pretty sure that the latest stuff uses the BTUART.

The console port, is also called FFUART, or /dev/ttyS0
