*are* there cheap ones?  maybe I'm just too, too cheap a bastard,
but the ones I see are O($US 100) per port.  cyclades, digi, who else?
multiport serial cards (comtrol rocketport) seem to be around $20/pt,
which seems close to reasonable.

has anyone tried a cluster where each node is simply has a serial crossover
to the next node?

hmm, cyclades 32pt model, web-list price, is $2741.  that works out to 
around 3% of total cluster cost.
