this means serial ort one

this means serial port two
if this messages are the only booting-messages
for serial-devices when the system is comming up
it looks like Your box have only 2 serial ports

usually port 1 = ttyS0 is the connector for mice
usually port 2 = ttyS1 is the connector for modem or terminal

thats right, ttyS2 is the 3. serial port which the box does'nt have
> How can I configure ttyS2, so that I can use my modem.
if sure You have this port and the bootmessage show it have a look 
search for a line like
#T3:23:respawn:/sbin/mgetty -x0 -s 57600 ttyS3
change it to
T2:23:respawn:/sbin/mgetty -x0 -s 57600 ttyS2
#                                 ^^^^^
#note You must add Your modemspecific parameters here
save the inittab and execute
init  q
thats all
