I, uh, "fourth" the e-motion.

I would like to use serial-console code for my router (486/33, 8MB, etc)
in the basement. I don't have a monitor for it, but I *do* have a vt330
in my room (50 cable-ft away). Serial-console would be extremely handy,
though not *absolutely* necessary. I could just cart my Dad's 40lb.
monitor down to the basement if the networking code in the latest kernel
fails. ;-)

TTYAL,
Omega
