I'm not sure what your question is exactly, but if you hook up a serial cable to the console port and attach the other end to a windows box, you should be able to console access through a program such as hyperterminal. If the other end is attached to a Unix box, use minicom.

Yes. Serial ports are used as console ports. Cable pinouts need to match.
