I have an LX, and a Classic, and I've used both of them with serial 
terminals at 9600bps without a bit of problem. What am I doing 
differently than you? I'm running Solaris. I also had linux installed 
on the Classic for a while, and also used a serial terminal at 9600bps. 
Is it possible that there's just a bug in the OpenBSD serial code for 
sparc? Or perhaps a bug in the LX/Classic firmware that Solaris works
