Hi John,

if you like to log in via RS-232 and you use Grub as bootloader, you need to add the following lines on top of the 
menu.lst:

serial --unit=0 --speed=19200 --word=8 --parity=no --stop=1
terminal serial

Also you need to add some statements to the kernel parameters like below:

title		Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.4.27-2-386 
root		(hd0,0)
kernel		/vmlinuz-2.4.27-2-386 root=/dev/hda2 ro console=ttyS0,19200n8
append		vga=normal
initrd		/initrd.img-2.4.27-2-386
savedefault
boot

This example works with ttyS0 (COM1 in Bios) an 19200bps. It works on my 
headless system fine! (Soekris net4501), you need to reboot!

PS: Wouldn't it be better to connect trough ssh or does the host not support any Network?
