A. UART VS. USART Universal Asynchronous Reciever Transmitter / Universal Synchronous-Asynchronous Reciever Transmitter. Different protocols on a similar bus... One can talk both ways simultaneously the other can't. Google the terms for a better description.

B, and C, - Build the Temperature sensor program in the NK guide, it uses the serial port to send data to your PC. It's setup and use is described there.
