on boot: "Serial driver version 4.13 with no serial options enabled" How do I enable options?

On boot I see: "Serial driver version 4.13 with no serial options enabled"
    tty00 at 0x03f8 (irq = 4) is a 16450
    tty01 at 0x02f8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A
    tty02 at 0x03e8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A

The serial mouse works fine at cua0 (tty00), but the other ports don't give
anything to our data logger.  I pulled rc.serial straight out of /dev/rc.d
from our last build of redhat (1.2.9).  Current build is 2.0.33, and the
install was a full clean install.  Data logger can see mouse input if set to
see that port, but the other ports give nothing.  Also, sometimes ports want
to be read-only.  I have tried everything that I can think of messing with
the setserial command, but how do I enable other serial options?  I am at a
loss for what is going on here.

Thanks for any help,
John Prins

This is normal, but is it correct for *your* hardware?

What if you plug thr mouse into /dev/ttyS1?  Can your "data logger"
see it then?

Have you set the device to the right mode?    Do you need a
null-modem?
