   From what I've read of the V210 & V240, using the port tagged "SERIAL
MGMT" (and not the one tagged "SERIAL OIOIO") on the back is mandatory
to configure ALOM until you get an OS installed.

   Mind you, the server ships with Solaris installed, but it's ignoring
the display & keyboard that are cabled up and persistently using the
terminal. I feel like Homer Simpson yelling "Be funnier!" at his TV.
