echoing to console during serial install...


I've created a custom install CD with a custom kernel that installs on
several platforms... some with graphical consoles, others with serial.  At
the end of the install, I run a late_command script that prompts the user
for some information relevant to my installs.  On the platforms with
graphics, I switch virtual terminals, echo the questions out to the
display, read the input from the keyboard, then jump back to tty1 when I am
done.  This works great.  On the serial console, however, I can't seem to
find a way to clear the screen, echo the text, then jump back to the
install.  Is there any way that my script can get control of ttyS0, when
the late_command is being executed?

Please CC me, since I'm not subscribed to the list.
