Serial line problems


I've not been able to make my serial port talk at any speed but 9600 bps on
my Alpha.  I've tried all sorts of programs -- pppd, slirp, photopc, etc. 
None of them work at 115200 or even 57600, talking to a variety of devices
included a Palm III and a digital camera.  Only 9600 works.  Setting to
38400 and the params to spd_xxx *occasionally* works.  However, I never need
to mess with spd_ on the i386 -- why is it needed on the Alpha?

My system is a 21164a 600MHz PX164LX motherboard running Linux 2.0.35.  It
is using glibc 2.0.7u.
