X-Board: possible to use ethernet and serial (via FTDI basic) at the same time??

Hi,
I just bought an X-Board (quick shipping BTW!) and I have a problem: I tried the chat server sketch and it works great but when I add a serial communication the server does not respond anymore. So is it possible to do both at the same time?
Also is it possible to use ethernet and xbee at the same time?
And, last question, how is it possible to setup the xbee module using only the x-board?
TIA

server.begin();
delay(1000);
Serial.begin(9600);

It seems that the delay is necessary, perhaps 1 sec is too long, but a delay is needed.
HTH
