I had posted about a week ago that I was having trouble with 
gettys which wouldn't die on my computone board under Interactive
Unix 2.0.2 on a Compaq 386/20e.
Doug at Interactive responded via e-mail:

I'm glad to report that running kconfig and selecting the HPDD
option (number 7) allowed me to "clear" int 15.  I re-ran the
Computone installation (after re-setting the jumper to use int 15)
and ....
It works!  I can now kill getty's and access the card normally!!
Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who responded with various
