I'm unsure of what you are asking here?
None of the above listed are REQUIRED unless you have the device!

Nope, Dos-Com2 is sio1.
	sio0 = Dos com1 (0x3f8/IRQ4)
	sio1 = Dos com2 (0x2f8/IRQ3)
	sio2 = Dos com3 (0x3e8/????, No real standard)
	sio3 = Dos com4 (0x2e8/????, No real standard)
FreeBSD lpt2 is equal to Dos lpt3
They are:
	lpt0 = 1st printer port, Dos lpt1 (0x3bc/IRQ7)
	lpt1 = 2nd printer port, Dos lpt2 (0x378/IRQ5)
	lpt2 = 3rd printer port, Dos lpt3 (0x278/????, No real standard)
I would imagine you only have one physical lpt port, That would be
lpt0. The rest are *More then likly* not needed!

Most of this is in LINT!

As taken from LINT!
