'standard' cross over cable will do. In the fireware/NeTTrom the serial
runs at 115200,n8 without any hardward/software flowcontrol. Connect it
without the keyboard plugged in will be easier. It appears you are
getting far enough in the boot process that you should be able to recover,
although it may involve downloading a kernel/firmware over serial.
As well you might want to make certain that the RAM is seated properly.
Now what do you see on the serail console? And we can go from there.
