(Normally you may not see your own messages on the list until someone
replies to them. You can check the gossamer archives to make sure
though ;-) )
Are you seeing any /dev/ttySx devices being created?
## ll /dev/ttyS*
What does your syslog say?
grep "ttyS" /var/log/messages
I might try disabling the onboard serial port and see if this helps at all.
