buy a motherboard that has serial console redirect in the BIOS
It's really worth the premium.
I've not found any colo providing a serial port connection with the colo
service. Any who do, surely want extra $$$ for it.
Instead, I use:
/dev/hda1 dedicated grub partition (very small)
with grub fallback, and also grub-set-default in a startup script. If
"system" does not boot, then "rescue" does on the next try, and I can
fix things remotely. Using nfs, I can even load a whole new distro into
Remote management, cheapo motherboard style.
