DL140 Com Ports

I recently upgraded my Proliant DL140 to Windows XP Pro (this os is required for Vendor applicaton). Upon the upgrade I 'lost' my COM and LPT ports. They are not present in device manager nor anywhere else I have looked. I have tried adding new hardware and it adds the com port as COM port 3...and it also shows up as having errors (yellow box). I tried to change it to com1 however, it says the port is in use. It does not show up in HyperTerminal or in using any of the DOS commands to check status. Is there any compatibility problems with this server and XP? I'm unable to find any drivers for the COM ports as well. Any thoughts?
