Well, I've got these processors, and SCSI controllers, and some
DUARTs, memory... maybe we could interface to PCI? If not, there are
still ISA cards around. Unless you wanted to try to use those
graphics controllers I have and build 'em right on.

Have you guys got the design finished yet? :)

Without sufficient buffering, those DUARTS aren't going to be able to
keep up with higher speeds, unless they've got larger FIFOs than I
think they have. But keep it under 38400 and you should be OK, which
is fine for terminal access.
