In that case, since the KJD has serial port connectors you can just plug the bracket you have to CN4 and set that connector to COM1.
You can use an adapter for DB9, but you would need a DB9 MALE to DB25 female. Or you could just get a DB9 bracket and plug that to your card.
Keep in mind that there are 2 different conventions for serial connector wiring, so if it doesn't work straight away you may need to use the other one:
The bracket is plugged in to CN4 and is set to COM1. Cute Mouse says "COM1 (03F8h/IRQ4) in mouse systems mode" at boot up, but the mouse does not work. So maybe it is due to the different convention for serial connector wiring? Or maybe there is something wrong with the adapter? Would this DB9 bracket work?
