In order to get serial console output from various components of your system special options may be needed. This page tries to give a short description of how to use these options.
In your boot/grub/menu.lst add the following:
serial --unit=0 --speed=115200 terminal --timeout=15 serial console
Change --unit=0 to --unit=1 for the second serial port (COM2).
Linux kernel command line
to send debug output to both the serial console on COM1 and to VGA.
Linux login prompt
In /etc/inittab add/enable a line like this:
T0:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttyS0 115200 vt100
Change ttyS0 to ttyS1 for COM2.
