You will need to redirect your console to /dev/tty10... then have another
terminal or shell monitor the output (could be as simple as minicom... with
history, hung off the machine over a null modem) I've done this plenty of
times... in fact... all of my headless boxes have the console directed to the
serial port.

uh, no. A "kernel panic" is a "casters-up" dead-as-a-doorknob condition...
the kernel is not running... it has stopped.
