Help: Basic setting up and requirements

I'm a newbie at conserver. I have several PCs and servers need to
manage and I don't know if conserver can help me. I read the basic.cf
for beginning but I think there are some concepts I may miss. So I got
some questions here.

1. What equipment do I need to use conserver to manage them? Every
machine has a console port, but nothing connected.
2. Does conserver can use LAN to manage machines using console?
3. What configurations need to set up for machines including BIOS and
OS? My OS is Fedora 12.

So let me show the environment I have. There are 4 machines.
A(, B(, C(, X( So A,
B, C will be clients, X is the server which is running conserver. They
are just connected with a switch, they are all have console ports as
well. But console ports are nothing connected.

My question is can I use conserver to view the console information of
each client? If yes, can anyone show me a basic configuration example?

Thanks very much.
