If NT is at all like win95, you can
1. disable IR, enable serial
2. reboot to confirm
3. change serial IRQ to something seldom used like IRQ5.
4. reboot to confirm
5. enable IR
6. reboot to confirm
this should allow both serial and IR together, but each consumes one IRQ
so make sure you have enough free ones to start with. this has nothing
to do with plug n play, so in *theory* NT should be able to do it too,
assuming the TP config program works the same under win95 and NT. I've
done the above on my 560X under win95 and it works perfectly.
