Okay, I don't know much about these ports. I just looked at the machine and
it indeed has a DB25 male port. However, the null modem cable I have is
DB25 MALE in one end and DB9 female at the other. Is there a DB25 female -
DB9 female cable? Or I need to find a converter?
If I understand correctly, I only need to unplug keyboard & mouse cable and
plug in null modem cable and boot. Anything else needs to be set?
Again, thanks all for all the information. I have a lot of fun already. :-)

The 3000/300 boxen use 2 serial ports for keyboard & mouse, from that
asinine DB15-male. The third, and only one available as console, is a
