Quoting Toni <bsd underscore ml at tiveron dot net>:

Section 5 of the linked page describes the process used to determine where the
console will go.
"Use either the -P option to select the console automatically, or the -h option
to activate the serial console."


Setting up a new M0n0 can be a challenge if you don't have a monitor and
keyboard handy.  With this mod I can place the box on site, connect a serial
cable to the M0n0 and my laptop, and I can set up the device.  No need to lug a
monitor and keyboard around.

I sure hope the feature is retained!
