No sorry, I just meant that I can boot off of the dvd without having 
to specify the serial port, so could perform the install, but had to 
manually edit the grub.conf file on the HD once installation had 
finished, so as the serial port was specified in the kernel boot 
line.  I suggest that the system looks for the Decext, but since the 
synth is old and tired, it is not picked up when the serial ports are probed.
