Im using the first com port (/dev/cuaa0) on my computer with no problems, Im trying to use the 
second com port (/dev/cuaa1) and having problems. 
running  FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE #0: Mon Feb  9 22:03:10 EST 2004

when I run minicom, I get
[root at beast]# minicom 
minicom: cannot open /dev/cuaa1: Device not configured

looking at dmesg, I see 
sio0 at port 0x3f8-0x3ff irq 4 flags 0x10 on isa0
sio0: type 16550A
sio1: configured irq 3 not in bitmap of probed irqs 0

so, FreeBSD cant see com2 on irq3, so Ive googled and saw someone that said
com2 isnt enabled by default in your kernel, enable it and recompile/reboot.

I look in my kernel config file and I see the following:

device          sio0    at isa? port IO_COM1 flags 0x10 irq 4
device          sio1    at isa? port IO_COM2 irq 3

does that look right?

the other thing im thinking is that com2 might be disabled in the bios, but I havent rebooted yet 
to take a look.
