The way I see it, it is a difference between how DOS and QB handle
the information. DOS, when you only have one serial port
adapter in the machine, calls the port the
Asynchronous Adapter' and places the base address of it in
the BIOS Data area at 0040:0000. QB on the other hand, when
you open COM2, looks in the BIOS Data area at 0040:0002 for
the base address of the port.
