Setting up serial console on Lenny

Hi everybody, this is my first post. Having problem setting up the serial console on Lenny. Building a "headless" server and need the serial console.

When I dmesg | grep tty, it only shows tty0. Is there a step by step guide for Lenny to set this up? I'm getting lost on if should be T0, S0 or S in the inittab.

A great place and I will be here often!

First off, Welcome to LQ!
First lesson for a newbie: Google is your friend. I googled Debian serial console and found this.
Next time, why not try googling yourself?
