Serial Driver

I have successfully loaded Porteus Kiosk with PXE over network. But I have a problem with serial port / com1 not load.
Is there a way to get the serial port working, because I need this as we have implemented authentication with legic card.
This works with a card reader connected on the serial port / com1. Any help would be appreciated.

I already have checked a topic ( ... lit=serial but the solution mentioned did not work (copy vmlinuz + 000-kernel.xzm) because the network boot hangs.
The error message is:
find: /lib/modules/3.13.6-porteus/kernel/drivers/net: No such file or directory
udhcpc: ioctl 0x8933 failed: No such device

hi max.muster,

serial drivers will be available in next version of kiosk (hoping to push it within a week or sooner) as they are needed for printing :)
you can check new kiosk website which just went alive up here:

if you need serial drivers now then please stick to kernel from desktop edition and update initrdpxe.xz component with drivers from it (that should let you booting over network).
