The FAQ states that to get a serial console working on a DECstation
2100/3100 you have to remove the framebuffer card.

I find 

>> setenv console 8

Works fine on my 2100.

I suppose if you lost the NVRAM you would have to find a keyboard to issue the
command from again.

Who hates grubbing around inside old hardware in case it breaks.
