The serial console can also serve as a life jacket. You would typically
add the argument "console=ttyS0,9600n8" to the kernel commmand line, but I
recommend that you use minicom to make sure that both machines are
correctly connected (with a null modem cable) before attempting this. And
you need a kernel with the serial console support built in.
