Forgive me if I'm suggesting something thats "a little too basic", but...

Serial port of a 2924 is an RJ-45, not a DB9. You need to have the 
cisco RJ-45 to DB9/DB25 adaptor (which are often different from other 
companies') and you need to have a *rollover* cable (not crossover or 
straight-thru) to connect it to the switch.

Last week a cop stopped me in my car.  He asked me if I had
a police record. I said, no, but I have the new DEVO album.
