For the serial-over-lan stuff:

From a running system you should check if IPMI is configured correctly:

/etc/init.d/ipmi start
ipmitool user list

Pick one user by ID and set the password for it:

ipmitool user set <ID> password <password>

Check which channel is the network channel:
ipmitool channel info <n>

where <n> is the channel number. I haven't found any way to list all possible
channels, so you'll have to step through the channels by hand.
One channel should give you an output with Medium type '802.3 LAN', that's the
one you're looking for.
Then you can check the LAN settings by

ipmitool lan print <n>

that will print out the current network configuration settings, most notably
the IP address.
Now you can use another machine and contact the IPMI from there:

ipmitool -H <ipaddress> -U <username> -P <password> power status

If you get a message like:
Chassis Power is on

then IPMI is configured properly. Then you should be able to do something like

ipmitool -H <ipaddress> -U <username> -P <password> -I lanplus sol activate

and you should be seeing the output of the serial-over-LAN connection.

Famous last words.
