[Leve 1] Use usb to com to connect SPARC machine in OpenSolaris.

Today, I try to use my colleage's usb to com cable, to connect SPARC machine.
1. check /dev/term folder first.
# ls -al /dev/term
total 8
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root   2 2009-11-10 18:20 .
drwxr-xr-x 252 root sys  252 2009-11-10 18:20 ..

2. connect cable then try again.
# ls -al /dev/term
total 9
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root   3 2009-11-10 18:00 .
drwxr-xr-x 253 root sys  253 2009-11-10 18:00 ..
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root  48 2009-11-10 18:00 0 -> ../../devices/pci@0,0/pci1043,8263@1d/device@1:0

3. use tip command to connect SPRAC machine.
PS. you have to set baud rate to 9600.
# tip -9600 /dev/term/0

4. Start the SPARC machine then you will get the console.

Wish this helps.
