Since some laptop manufacturers are opting not to include a serial com port in their product, I'm wondering if there is an adapter that will allow a connetion from any of the other more popular port types (USB, Firewire, or even from a ethernet port, etc) to the console port for initial configuration?
If not, what happens when serial com ports no longer exist??
