SubjectUsing a terminal device as console.
I'd like to use a terminal connected to a serial port as my console
device. I've found a line in ./init/main.c which does an open on
/dev/tty1 (right before the kernel exec's init). Can I just change
this to opening /dev/ttyS0 (or whatever), or is it subtler than that?

LILO already has a configuration option to output LILO prompts to
serial devices. Is there a LILO switch that tells the kernel to use
the serial device as console?

[This doesn't seem to be in the Kernel-HOWTO or the Meta-FAQ.]
