	We have used the RAS2000 and have had no problems with it.  I can 
access the consoles of each of the connected systems. It was much more 
work to set up RedHat Linux to use a serial console than it was to set 
up the RAS2000.  If you do go with RAS2000, don't forget to read the 
"Tipmenu Release Notes" which will be one of the most helpful of the 
documents.  I have not had the opportunity to work with any other serial 
console systems, however, so I don't know how they compare.  I hope this
