What serial console? :)
I realize there are unofficial patches for it. I'd love to be using a
serial console, if only it were part of Linus's kernel source. I've got a
spare RocketPort 16 port card I could wire into most of the systems.

For the average user with a standalone PC running Linux, if there's a mono
card (herc clone), then there is no scroll back...unless that's somehow
been added recently.
