[SLUG] Serial Console Setup

I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to get an old 486 laptop (running Debian of course) used as a serial console for some hubs/switches. I've read the Terminal / Serial HOW-TO's but they aren't really providing help in my scenario.

Does anyone know where I can find doco more orientated to what I'm trying to do? Or am I missing something fundamental?



Apt-get a clue. Apt-get Debian.
