I think the Ultra5 uses a sab82532 for the serial line. This chip is
used in nearly all Ultras or Clones I know of and cannot more than
38400. So even if you modem can 115200, your SPARC cannot do it.

Linux is like a Vorlon.  It is incredibly powerful, gives terse,
cryptic answers and has a lot of things going on in the background.
