hook up terminal; edit ttytab; restart init

or precise?

1. hook a cable from the terminal to the ipx (say serial port A). 
   if the serial port is not an rs232, your workstation should have 
   come with an adaptor

2. as root, edit /dev/ttytab and turn on ttya

   ttya	"/usr/etc/getty std.9600" unknown on local  

3. as root, 'kill -1 1' (this simply restarts the init process)
