Thanks, Henk.  The main instance I've ever encountered parity other than 
N is with DEC systems, either VAX or Alphas.  And I was not connecting 
to the consoles, which I am in this case.  Just worth asking.  Seems to 
be one of the common fubars with all the "how do I hook up serial" to 
any system.
