Some of the reason I want to make "our" own distro is that we can call it our own, and
have 100% control over what goes into it... but I'm totally for ripping of other distros,
so I'm going to get Trinux and some other things from freshmeat and have a look...
No point in doing work somebody else has done before you...

In addition to my last mail to get serial port telnet (why not use tcp/ip based telnet?)
You need to make sure that you have compiled in support of serial console and serial
ports.... and then it's just a matter of starting a getty or another tty daemon and hook it
up to /dev/ttySx (or /dev/cuax if you are using an old kernel)
