Does anyone know of a breakout box that converts USB to 8 serial ports. The other gotcha is the ports must be DOS compatable under Win95, meaning the program is launched by Win95 but uses direct hardware addressing.

I don't remember ever seeing a .VXD (virtual device driver) that does what you want for ANY USB->serial hub. The driver would need to trap the port access and send the appropriate data/commands to the USB attached serial ports. Perfect hardware emulation is not an easy task. Sorry.
