The handbook describes a way to install freeBSD to a headless system. (http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/install-advanced.html)

I'm used to drag'n'drop(!) my 45kg 21" spare monitor in and out from the closet to do single-user tasks. But now I want to go the serial port way.

1. Is there a way to get a serial console after the installation is done? How? (Link?)
2. Can I connect a palm to use as a console on the headless freeBSD system? How? (Link?)
