RJ-11 is four wires. Standard phone jack.

Xenix definitely needs device drivers installed. Probably so does
SCO Unix. And the device drivers came with the board, not the OS.

Some Linux distributions will recognize it immediately, but even
then you're best off recompiling the kernel -- since there are a
lot of other things taking up kernel space that don't need to be
recognized. I like to start with a sparse kernel and add things.
