Well, what I did in order to be able to simply BOOT Debian Linux and
get a prompt was to boot off the floppy, mount my hard drive with

mount -t ext2 /dev/hda1 /mnt

and go in and edit /etc/rc.d/rc.M.  Remove the call to
/etc/rc,d/rc.serial.  Or else you could simply rename rc.serial to
something else.  As to how to get setserial to work, I don't know.  I
have never bothered using it before (is it for 16550 or multi-port
