[parisc-linux] lifimage

I changed the console by booting de lifimage. The machine now boots without
a keyboard connected to it. Also when I push the power button it doesn't
turn off. So I'm pretty sure the console is now the serial device.

Now my problem is that I can't get any output. I'm using HyperTerminal 6.3
on windows 98. The settings are 9600 8-N-1. My serial cable is D9F/D9F.
Do I need to reboot the 712 every time I try to connect to it? Or can I just
plug the cable into another COM port and try again?
