Serial port

Finally took some time configuring a firewall out of an old box of mine. Took me ages since I only had two sane floppies around and Debian requires six for a net install (I hope the next Debian Installer will be saner in this regard). This is the relevant grub configuration:

serial --unit=0 --speed=9600
terminal --timeout=5 serial console
title           Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.4.24-i586-0.1
root            (hd0,0)
kernel          /vmlinuz-2.4.24-i586-0.1 root=/dev/hda3 ro
console=tty1 console=ttyS1,9600
