From OF prompt, I could not achive anything. From the SMS (graphical)
I set netbooting and off I went. On the graphics display (IBM GXT
250P/255P) I see the following:

BOOTP S = 1     R = 1
FILE: /scr/tftpboot/vmlinux-prep.initrd

Load Addr=0x6000000 Max File Size=0x10000000
Packet Count = 2700

On status number display: F77

Is this ok? Which programs are best suited for serial console, or is
there a good howto? The most HOWTOs I read simply say "point your
terminal ...". 

I tried both 2.4 and 2.6 from Svens repository, downloaded this
