Well, I guess I'm just lucky. I found a motherboard with a serial port
right off the bat on Amazon last August. I just searched for server
motherboard with serial port and it came right up. I didn't look at any
pdf files. Sure enough, it has a normal, regular serial port which worked
fine when I did my Debian install. I really don't get why there seems to
be so much trouble finding such a thing. As I said, maybe I'm just lucky.
I've found that the dedicated computer sites are useless. I had much
better luck with Amazon. I wouldn't bother with the shops, but I'm lazy.
