M68EVB912B32 EVB SCI Usage

When using the above mentioned evaluation board, I transfer listing files (.s19) to it using the Windows Hyperterminal and a connection via the serial port. Does this mean I cannot use the serial port in my programs? Looking at the EVB manual it seems like I must use a BDM (background debug mode) setup to open up the SCI port for usage for my programs. Does anyone have experience or pointers with this board and serial communications?

Aren't there a total of three serial ports available on the chip (SCI0, SCI1, and SPI)?

Thanks for all and any help and advice.
