I dont have a Serial port on my Asus board unless i buy a Serial
bracket to connect to the board header.  According to the HEYU FAQ you
can use a USB->serial adapter which i can get for 3 bucks on ebay:

Q: My computer doesn't have RS232 serial ports, only USB ports.  Can
   I use a USB-Serial adapter?

A: Yes, provided that your OS has kernel drivers for the specific adapter.

So, I assume CentOS/Fedora (Going to move to cent on my next system
built will work right?
