	The Hardware Management Console (HMC) from IBM uses Ethernet on the Power5 but on the Power4 machines used a serial connection... AND the network connection for some activities.  Dynamic LPAR doesn't work on Power4 without a network connection between the HMC and the LPAR.
	Unfortunately if you are partitioning then you need to use the HMC so you don't have a serial console.  The Power4 HMC disabled the serial console as well, and you were in the same boat.  At least the HMC provides the ability for multiple users to use different consoles simultaneously.

I wonder if its anything like IBM's new POWER5 systems. They use an
ethernet connection now for management versus serial console, though
serial console may still be an option on standalone nonLPARed systems.
