Hi Jonathan,
Thanks for the tip
 Kernel::require 'serialport'
does indeed help, very nice! I was calling the program with
ruby -rselrialport miniterm.rb , which is not as clean.

Unfortunately this does not address the original problem i still get the 
same error message:

C:>ruby miniterm.rb COM9 9600 8 1
(eval):3:in `create': No such file or directory (Errno::ENOENT)
        from (eval):3:in `new'
        from miniterm.rb:11

Do you not get this error? Have you modified the source code? Do you 
think you could send me your .so ? any pointers on how to get this to 
work would be greatly appreciated!
I use both linux and windows and would love to be able to use the same 
serialport extension for both.

Thanks again
Eduardo
