FOSSIL didn't appear on the scene until 1986-87. :)

I'm not sure how you'd go about performing interrupt driven serial I/O 
under Linux, but I can't imagine it's that difficult.

There is a BBS program called EleBBS that is written with FPC and works 
under Linux.  You might want to dig up a copy and see how he did the 
serial I/O routines for the BBS.
