How boot linux form console in Itanium 5670?

I have a new itanium 5670 with Linux AS preinstalled.

There isn't a graphic card with the VGA and USB connectors.

When i connect to GSP with serial cable and Hiperterminal, i can start the boot of linux, but the operating system don't give the prompt, i suppose that the operating system search a graphic monitor.

Can i boot Linux in the Itanium form the console?

How Can i work with linux on Itanium from serial console.

Thanks

If it is not already there, you can give the following extra command-line options:

console=ttyS0,9600,8n1

to the linux kernel. You have to change 9600 to your terminal speed.

If the machine has booted, a serial port getty like mgetty is needed for login.
