Default /dev/cuad0 busy

I'm trying to open communications on my computer's only serial port, but, whenever I do, I get the error "Device Busy: '/dev/cuad0'". All I know is that fstat says that /dev/cuad0 is not open and that getty has /dev/ttyd0 open. Does anyone know how I can get /dev/cuad0 working?

You first should make sure that the permissions are correct. What does the following command produce?.
Code:
$ ls -l /dev/cuad0

Please explain or specify what you are doing exactly.
