Bug#290382: needs serial console support

Package: aboot-installer
Severity: normal
Tags: d-i

It was hard for me to work out that to boot my newly installed alpha
with serial console, I needed this command line:

>>>boot dka0 -fi "2/vmlinuz" -flags "ro initrd=/initrd.img root=/dev/sda3 console=ttyS0"

Could aboot-installer be made smarter about serial installs, so it adds
console= to aboot.conf? Then I could just "boot dka0 -flags 0".
