First download and install the serial port driver CDs found here:
ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/releases/i386/ISO-IMAGES/6.1/

The above driver is much simpler to use than the serial port routines  
that come in Windows. Additional benefit is that code written to the  
FreeBSD driver works almost unchanged in MacOS X.
