Support for console on serial port is compiled into the kernel, as are the
appropriate bootargs.

Now what I'm trying to do is start the Debian woody installer.  Other
people (Rolf springs to mind) seem to have had success starting that from the
serial port, so I guess the inittab in the woody root ramdisk supports

Thanks for all the other RS/6000 stuff you mentioned, it warrants a close
