tftboot and serial console

I tried doing a tftp boot on an old ss2 with a serial line and no frame
buffer. No problem getting the image and tilo showed up fine, but after
the kernel was loaded, no serial console. Is a serial console supported
for a network install?

I can dig up a frame buffer and a floppy if I have too, but I have
several of these that I would like to get running and it would be nice
if it worked.

On a similar note, my ultra30 install off of tftp could not configure
dhcp at all do to lack of packet_socket and such in the kernel.

Anyone seen any of these problems? I guess I could look into fixing it
if someone could point me at the sources for the tftp installs (moving
from redhat->debian so I'm not sure where to look).
