If you run conserver ( ports/comms/conserver-com ) on all the machines,
you can even set it up so you don't have to remember which machine is
controlling which machine's console (it will chain to the correct
machine).  A multiport serial card in one master console box does let
you consolidate the logs on one machine though.
