[rescue] Decserver 200/MC as console switch?

I've got a decserver 200/mc and I've managed to get the terminal server
software to load.

What I'd like to do is set it up so I can hang my various unix boxes off
of it and use the console port on the terminal server to switch between
them. [think:  serial kvm]

I know I'm going to need a pile of null-modems, but I have no idea how
to configure the server to do what I want.   The documentation I've come
across seems to indicate that this is possible.

Anyone have any documentation on how I'd set this up?  I don't need LAT,
so that's not really an issue.

[of course, if anyone has a newer terminal server that'll do this that
they're willing to part with for postage, I'd not turn it down :) ]
