It's probably NOT a DB9! The 'B' means it's a shell the size of a DB25. The
"little" connector with a shell the size of what's used on a VGA or EGA
connector is an 'E' shell, so the serial port connector common on many PC's is
a DE9. This matter's been beaten to death, so check the list archive for
details. Remember, using comonly misapplied nomenclature does not help clear
things up.
