I use a 4521. For two additional serial ports (for a GPS and other
toys) I'm using a PCMCIA USB adapter and two USB-serial cables. Just
recompile your kernel to include usbserial.o (generic usb-serial
driver) and you're good to go for as many as you want to tree off of
USB, limited only by power supply.
