For now the kernel didn't find a driver for it. Make sure you have
com*    at isapnp?
in your kernel config file, and then it should appear as com2 I guess.
If this is not enouth you need to add an entry for it in
(something like
devlogic        com     SUP2171         0       SupraExpress 56i Sp Intl
and then run 'make -f Makefile.isapnpdevs' and rebuild kernel.
