I recently acquired a DECstation 5000/200.  I've never worked with
these machines before, but I've had a lot of experience with VAXes. 
I've been trying unsuccessfully to setup a serial console on this
machine, but I can't seem to quite get it.  I've hooked up the DB25
port labeled 3 to a serial port on another computer, but nothing shows
up, even after I remove the framebuffer.  I'm assuming my cable isn't
wired correctly, so I'd like to know if anyone knows of a place to get
working cables to plug into the serial port of my computer.

Thanks in advance,
