They're kind of expensive too :(
I know of 2 sellers of them in Australia

Rose Electronics makes the one DCW sell..

Although it seems there are plenty to choose from (eg Belkin, Cylades, Adder 

I haven't used any because they're too pricey :)
(Still since serial BIOS mobos are rare/expensive it's probably the cheaper 
option for a bunch of machines).

You could kernel debug over it except you couldn't cut and paste which would 
suck for reporting back traces.
