[Tig] Dumb 888-DUI Question

I found it easiest to run a terminal program on a cheap PC (old mac  
duo in my case) and have it beside my panels at all times.  Just hook  
to the vt102 (or similarly labeled connection on the meta speed  
board.)  I spent a lot of time getting the initial framing correct -  
see the manual, but then had no problems for months (on a Y front.)   
Write down those settings!

Good Luck!
