Michael,

You need to make sure that a proper driver is loaded for the serial
port.
If you type
 cat /var/log/messages 
after booting then you should see all your configured serial ports.
You can see the devices under /proc/bus/pci
 cat /proc/bus/pci/devices 
gives you a list of PCI devices. The serial board should be there.
If you type
 lsmod
you get a list of all loaded kernel modules. The serial driver should be
there. If not, you should install one.

You can test the port with minicom.

Regards,
Jeroen.
