Description of problem:
Please make setting up a serial terminal easier.  I have to make a few minor 
changes to about 8 different files to get it to work.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to follow the instructions of the 
2. remote-serial terminal how-to.  It is well written, but
3. it should be easier to setup

Are you referring to  a serial console which you want to use after installation?
Comment 2 Jason 2002-12-10 12:04:58 EST
Yes, that is correct.  I prefer to do my installations in front of the machine, 
and then manage them via a portserver.  I think it is more secure this way, of 
course I could be wrong.
Comment 3 Mike McLean 2002-12-10 14:28:52 EST
This bug should not be in the MODIFIED state.
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-02 16:14:23 EST
If you do a serial installation (eg, booting with 'linux console=ttyS0')
everything should get set up sanely as far as I know.  What isn't being done?
Comment 5 Jason 2003-01-08 22:51:43 EST
I didn't know about 'linux console=ttyS0'.  Where would I put this?  In the 
grub.conf?  I was following the instruction in the remote-serial terminal.
Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-10 01:48:58 EST
The installer supports installing over the serial terminal.  If you install like
this (booting with 'linux console=ttyS0'), then everything gets set up for a
serial console.
