If card is made by digi - then very likely, if not - then very unlikely without driver disk

We use DIGI boards for 4 ports or more but we are only needing to add 1 port to this server.  I cannot get it to work.
Thanks

For SCO, I have used Stallion cards (8, 16, 32 and 64 ports), it comes with driver for
SCO 5.x, very reliable.
see: http://www.stallion.com/html/support/faq-ec-hw.html

I have also used "PC COM board " (8 port, made by Decision Computer?), good card,
comes with driver.

The other type od muti-IO care (serial) I have used are the Specialix Cards, comes
with driver, but I didn't like it. (don't ask me why, It can cause "double kernel panic",
but it was a few years ago!).

All driver normal comes with a manual (or readme) file tell you how to install them,
don't worry, it is not hard to do it.

Ask people who made that board for driver.
Or paste FCC ID of card to let me find the manufacturer
