This contradicts the PA-RISC Booting HOWTO:

----- How can I change the boot console to serial on a 712?

Unfortunately, you can't. Although 712s are configured for in-house HP
development to use serial console, this configuration isn't supported
in the field. You have to use a graphics console for 712s.


I'd like to know if this needs to be corrected.
