Serial Ports A & B (COM1 & COM2)
This allows you to select the I/O ports and interrupts used by the
two serial ports. It is best to leave these at the default settings. Do
not disable the serial ports unless you are absolutely sure you are not
going to need them.
Port B will be greyed out on those systems which are provided with
an infra-red remote receiver.
This allows you to set the I/O port and interrupt used by the
parallel port. You can select Standard or Extended port modes. To
get EPP mode you may have to change the I/O port setting.
Parallel Port Mode
Any parallel port devices that you may wish to attach, such as a tape
streamer or external hard drive etc., should have full instructions
supplied with them that will tell you if the port capabilities need to
be altered to one of the extended options above.
