  If I understand what you want (a text login on the serial terminal,
in addition to the console on the PMAG-B?), you just need to turn on a
getty for the serial port. IIRC, there's a sample line in inittab.
  Port 1 should be available as a tty login, even with the graphics
console. It just doesn't get turned on by the system.
