Hi Holly, there's no UI to do this yet, as you found out.

By default, you don't need to do any config, at least on Linux.  COM1
defaults to /dev/ttyS0, COM2 to /dev/ttyS1, and so on.  LPT1 defaults to
/dev/lp0.. you get the idea.

If you want to change it, you can create a link in .wine/dosdevices from,
say, com1 to the device you want it to use.  So if for example you wanted
com1 to be /dev/cua0, you should have this in dosdevices:
lrwxrwxrwx  1 juan juan 9 Oct  4 08:15 com1 -> /dev/cua0

Hope that helps,
