	I'm pretty sure I have a four or eight port ISA serial card around
	here somewhere, hopefully its supported, but if not is probably
	a pretty simple beast to drive. I found it next to that BCC02
	video cable I've been trying to locate for you for ages :)

	Baring that... you _must_ have a vax with multiple serial ports -
	you could use that as the console server with the PC as a compile
	resource :)
