    I have a CF-54 without anything in the "option slot" meaning it doesn't have a serial port. I'd like to see if there's any way to get a hardware serial port working so I don't have to drag out my CF-30 whenever I need one. I've seen a few docking stations that have a serial port on them, does anyone know if they are an actual hardware port (vs being emulated via usb) and if so do they require your computer to have a serial port in the first place? Alternatively, does anyone know if the serial port module could be ordered from heartland and installed myself?
