SubjectConsole as terminal on serial port

Out of curiousity, has anyone done any work on configuring
the kernel to boot up and use a serial port as the console?

I'd like to role a router out of linux, but would like to have
the console as a terminal. This may sound silly, but it saves $60-$150
on a monitor and video card and the serial port can be connected to
another system on my network (yea, I'm cheap).
