Due to cost concerns.  So using the serial line is out of the

  I'm trying to get memtest+ to fly on our system.  Problem is That I
don't have a console on my system.  I have USB and a video card, But the
video card bios isn't run since I run linuxbios.
  Can anyone please give me a hint as to how they've done it?
