Iam using cento-5.3 on x86 machine and iam working to get the console 
messages redirected to serial port.
I have made the necessary changes in the /etc/inittab file.

- - - - - 
so:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty ttyS0 9600 vt100
- - - -- - 

and also in /etc/grub.conf file 

- - - -
serial --speed=9600 --unit=0 --word=8 --parity=no --stop=1 terminal 
--timeout=10 serial
kernel /boot/vmlinux-2.6.18-128.el5 ro root=LABEL=/1 console=ttyS0,9600
 - - - 

Still Iam not able to see any console messages redirection  on serial 
port.I have connected the serial port of the Machine_1 which has centos 
running to Machine_2 where i have opened an hyperterminal.I see no console 

messages displayed here. Iam , I missing any configuration or is there an 
rpm i should install ? 
Thanks and Regards,
