I am setting a new system with FreeBSD 2.2.5 and am having mouse / 
serial port troubles.

I am using a motherboard from a company call Iwill and it works very 
well for our WIN95 systems.  Under BSD, the serials ports don't seem 
to be detected.  Upon bootup, BSD show "not detected" for both SIO0 
and SIO1.  For another system with a different motherboard, both are 

I was able to verify that the serial port indeed work for a mouse on 
COM 1, since I used a WIN95 bootdisk, load the microsoft mouse driver 
and ran a mouse based DOS app.  The mouse worked fine.

Why can't it detect my serial ports????  They are at the standard COM 
1 and COM 2 addresses.  Is there a way to force it to find them??

Also, does the CD-ROM version of 2.2.5 come with the Apache web 
server built in or do I have to download this???
