Hello!

I'm looking for some solution, to get access to PC console over
ethernet or serial port. Of course I know that I can configure lilo and
kernel to use ttyS0, but I'd like to access to PC also before lilo will
start, to see the full boot process (including possibility to
enter/change BIOS settings).
I've heared about some PCI cards which can emulate VGA/KBD, sending
output over net, but I can't find them on the internet.
Can anyone knows something about it ?

One possibility is a kvm. Some will let you access the console(s)
via tcp. Here's one I saw recently

I know I've seen others in the past.
