AFAIK there is enhanced serial console support in 2.1.*. But don't forget,
2.1 is "unstable"!
I have no experience with Suns at all, but Maybe you can try this:
make a standard debian bootdisk
use your RedHat system to compile a 2.1 kernel with console support
replace the bootdisk's kernel with this one
make the disks bootloader pass the necessary parameters for the
install the kernel on your system
copy the disks root image to your system
make your bootloader (SILO?) load this image as initrd as the
bootdisks do and pass the parameters for the serial console
This is only an idea - maybe this works...
