Resource 02F8-02FH

I need to use the Serial Port on my DL380 G4 as Com 2. I set it up in the Bios with the only IRQ option available Com2 IRQ3 I/O 2F8H-2FFH; But it seems this I/O is conflicting with a MotherBoard Resource. Is there anyway to get the MB to free up this resource? The Application I am using requires this specific IRQ and I/O.
