[ale] Linux as a Terminal Server?



Ok,
  I'm going crazy right now trying to find a "system" I can use as a
terminal/console server. I need something that I can connect ttya from
my Servers (SUN) to the serial of some machine and use it to remotly 
access the physical console of my server.  This way I can login as 
root remotely in an emergency (NIS  is down) or send a STOP-A/break
to hardbood the machine.  Does anyone know if I can do this with a
Linux box with a serial port multiplier?  Has anyone done it?  Any
suggestions?
