Thanks for the detailed explanation.

May be you miss that the order for the kernel options from
/boot/grub/menu.lst is important!
You should use something like console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200
because:
The kernel can be configured to output messages to the serial port and
to the attached monitor. However messages from init and syslog only
appear on the last-listed console device

Quoted from
http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-HOWTO/Remote-Serial-Console-HOWTO.html#BUGS-MONITOR

About the login problem: look at something like this in /etc/inittab
# Example how to put a getty on a serial line (for a terminal)
T0:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttyS0 115200 vt100
