There is rather detailed documentation here:
https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/serial/moxa-smartio

Have in mind that is dated from 2008 - which is still by many years newer than the average I came across when searching on the subject...  :P

I would be interested in an answer to your last question also.
How to include a module (kernel module) into the kernel to get a piece of hardware working with the system.
Would be the project "LFS - Linux From Scratch" of any help here?
Do I need to know how to recompile a kernel?
t(w)o be(ers) or not t(w)o be(ers) that is the question

In this particular case, you'd first need to recompile the kernel with the settings mentioned earlier in the thread.

After that you usually follow the instructions provided with the out of tree driver package.

i attached two files. these two files are sufficient to make driver modules for moxa serial card for tiny core version 4.7.7 and kernel version 3.0.21
mxser.c
mxser.h

if yes plz tell me i m so confused.

From readme.txt in the driver download for your hardware:
Quote
The Moxa Smartio/Industio driver is ready in the Linux kernel version 2.2.14 or above. But to use this built-in driver, you still need more utilities which downloaded from Moxa ftp or CD-ROM. We suggest you backup this built-in driver (/usr/src/linux/drivers/char/mxser.c) and use the driver downloaded from Moxa or CD-ROM.

..and:
Quote
# cd /
# mkdir moxa       
# cd /moxa
# cp /mnt/fd0/<driver directory>/driv_linux_smart_vx.x_build_yymmddhh.tgz
# tar -xzvf driv_linux_smart_vx.x_build_yymmddhh.tgz
...
 Find "Makefile" in /moxa/mxser, then run
# make;

Do I need to know how to recompile a kernel?

For an example, see here:

If you look at the 3.8.13 tinycore patched kernel source in linux-3.8.13-patched/drivers/tty, you can see various moxa files.

if you look at the kernel config using "make menuconfig" you can enable device drivers --> character devices --> non-standard serial port support as follows:
Code: [Select]
[*] Non-standard serial port support
...
< >   Cyclades async mux support (NEW)
<M>   Moxa Intellio support
<M>   Moxa SmartIO support v. 2.0
..and then recompile the kernel and see if things work.

Since you will also need the moxa modules just use "make"
