Headless Netwinder

In /etc/inittab, after the gettys lines, add:
7:12345:respawn:/sbin/getty cua0 19200 linux

In /etc/gettydefs, add (if not already there), after the 38400 line:
19200# B19200 CS8 CRTSCTS # B19200 SANE -ISTRIP -HUPCL CRTSCTS #@S login: #19200

(make sure that the 38400 line preceding this one finishes with 19200, and not 9600, so that the 'chain' is unbroken)

in /etc/rc.d/rc.serial or /etc/rc.d/rc.modules, add:
insmod serial

chmod 666 /dev/cua0

Reboot (or just insmod serial, and run 'init q').

On the client, run a terminal program, set at 19200 speed, for example:
cu -l cua0 -s 19200

(be sure to load the serial driver first and chmod 666 /dev/cua0)
