Can you boot RHE3 normally with output coming over the serial

Clutching at straws, it might be worth comparing the major/minor
number of /dev/console between RH3 and Debian Sid. I seem to
recall it changed from 4 to 5 at some point.

Also, what happens if you have "console=ttyS0 console=tty0" (or
vice versa) on the xenlinux command line.

Have you modified your /etc/inittab and to start a getty on
/dev/ttyS0? (you'll probably need to ad ttyS0 to /etc/securetty
too). At least you should be able to login in and prod around
even if you haven't solved the console output problem.
