trouble installing drivers

I'm trying to install a drive so that i can use an FTDI made cable that converts a TTL data port to a RS232 data. But i've run into trouble. when i install it it comes up in my hardware manager as a Com3 which is good but I'm lacking a com1 and an LPT1 which i assume i need. The FTDI guys say i need to check my BIOs settings to make sure my mother board ports are enabled. I'm pretty new to computers and any help would be greatly appreciated.
