 Not sure if you want to add this to the above URL or not. For the B1k:

 The command to switch to serial is:

>  path console serial_1

 to go back to graphics mode:

> path console graphics(2)

 Perhaps this is because it has the EG_PCI card, and not onboard VGA
like the C class.

 Going through the install now, via serial console. Everything was working
fine until I tried to install a kernel from the cdrom:

You have more than one CD-ROM drive.  Please select the drive from which
you want to install Debian

/dev/name:      : No description defined for this type of CD-ROM.
/dev/           : No description defined for this type of CD-ROM.

 While I only have one cd-rom. Instead I chose to install a kernel via ftp
(the default path on the iso is incorrect, one must add "32" or "64" to
the end, I chose 32. The URL it went to was:
and file: images-1.44/rescue.bin everything exited cleanly.

 Now it's prompting to "Configure Device Driver
Modules" and am getting the following error:

No modules were found in /target/lib/modules/2.4.9-32 that
could be configured. Please install the kernel modules
first, by running the "Configure Device Driver Modules"

 And it brings me back to the "Configure Device Driver Modules" prompt.
