Thanks for bringing that to my attention!  AARG!  Not yet ANOTHER non 
standard connector.  I didn't know that.  Here's what the manual says my 
motherboard com port connector looks like.  Each pin is an X:

9 X   X   X   X   X 1
       X   X   X   X 2

1 = DCD
2 = Rx

Can anyone tell me the right adapter to bring it out to the rear panel.  
I usually like to purchase on Amazon.
