Yes, you're right. I am not sure what I was thinking of last night.... But isn't
the switchable divider only present on later boards (the early ones being 
pretty much 110 baud only)?

This printset _does_ show the jumpers I mentioned. Look at page 75 of the 
.pdf bottom, left-ish. Jumper W1 is described as disabling the internal serial
port when fitted. On the next page, just above leftish of centre is W2, 
documented as installed to make a slave processor.

May be easier than finding the right crystal to change a DL11A-E to the
'other' set of baud rates :-)
