You need a null modem adaptor inorder to get anything from the serial
(I could be incorrect in making the assumption that a mac serial cable is
not setup to be a null modem cable.) No worries though, in the case I'm
its a 5$ connector at Radio Shack.

I just bought a SGI Indy, but unfortunate for me did not order the
monitor adapter in time to test it when it got here. It's here now,
and I've been trying to power it on via serial console. I've got a
Mac serial cable, and I've tried it with both a Mac and PC. I turn it
on, get the Indy start-up sound, then no activity on the serial line.
Does it take a while for it to start, or am I just missing something?
Minicom's set to 9600, 8N1. If there is a problem, is there a way to
diagnose the problem via the serial console?
