Have you checked into opendos? It multitasks right from the command line
of dos, and requires you to do nothing extra to make your programs work in
a multitasking environment.  You could give your serial port a higher
priority than the background job, then run the rc5 client, put it in the
background, and the bbs would still operate as normal.  (unfortunately,
I've not yet figured out how to make com3 and 4 behave under the
multitasker, so if you're using one of those, this may not work for you)
But it's certainly worth a try, and since it's free to download and
install, it's worth a look.  (go to http://www.caldera.com/dos)  Hope this
helps.
