Get the DOS ThinkPad Configuration Utility (also known as 'ps2') and

Excellent! This was exactly the problem!
As it happens, there are two commands for the serial port. "ps2 se" turns the serial connector on the back on and off, and "ps2 sera" configures the actual serial port. My computer had "ps2 se enable" and "ps2 sera disable". Fat lotta good that does. Still worked in Windoze, tho.
Oh, and you can disregard the question about my parallel port that I hadn't asked yet... While I was in there, I enabled the parallel port ("ps2 par enable") and moved the I/O port from 3BC to 378. It's really amazing how much better it works when it's on...
That PS2 is a really handy utility. I don't suppose anyone is reverse-engineering it and porting it?
Note! The Windows ThinkPad Configuration Utility will NOT do the
job. It enables the port on the running system and saves the setting
in the registry. It does NOT update the BIOS setting in ROM.
I just hope that booting into Windoze (which I must do on occasion) doesn't reset the changes I made with PS2. Ever had that happen?
