As you did get a login prompt, it seems that /etc/inittab was set up 
correctly to use the serial console (an active T0: line pointing to the 
correct serial device). Normally this should be sufficient.

How exactly did you boot the installer (with what parameters)?
What exactly do you mean by "the system appeared to hang"?
Was there indeed a correct T0: line in /etc/inittab (please send us the 
inittab as created by the installer)?
If there was, why would your system need an additional co: line where 
other systems with serial console setup do not?
