Not at the moment, unfortunately.  Due to some stupidity in modern BIOS 
code, the automatic keyboard detection that we used to do no longer works 
and had to be removed.

If you can deal with booting from floppies, you can create /boot.config
on the first floppy containing just '-h' and you'll get a serial console. 

If you're building a CDROM install distribution, vnconfig/mount the 
boot.flp image and do the same there.
