Configuring the serial port

Hello all, I am working with Python over Linux since some months ago,
and Im not still very experienced with all this.

I would like to configure the serial port using Python. In order to do
this, I know there are some functions under termios module which allow
me to do it (i.e. termios.tcgetath(fd)), but I dont know how to get
the file descriptor to this 'special' file.

I have tried to get the fd using open('/dev/ttyS1','r') but it doesnt
work out.

Do you know if I am in the right way to do the task? is there
something missing here?

Any post will be of great help, thanks in advance,

Install pyserial, you can find it on sourceforge. Its platform-independend
(supports even java for jython) and gives a nice, clean api. I went through
all that termios-stuff, and while its possible, pyserial is much better.
