Prologix support at prologix.biz

I assumed (mistakenly, perhaps) that Ed's question was about firmware

Prologix.exe is way better for everything else. And one of these days John
may even add firmware update support ;-)

Prologix.exe should work in Vista, if you can get past the inevitable
nagging.  I'd like to hear if otherwise.  You don't need Hyperterm for most
things if you use prologix.exe.

For re-flashing the firmware, though, you will need a real terminal program.
Prologix.exe will communicate with the board behind your back and cause
problems with the boot loader.
