With a null-modem cable, and tie a getty to the serial port.

Something like:

S1:456:respawn:/sbin/getty ttyS1 DT9600 vt420

in your /etc/inittab, and perhaps some gettydefs entries..  Then an 
"init q" to restart init.  You hopefully will get a login banner and
prompt on the vt420...

See the Serial howto.
