Thank you, but I'm looking for installer (e.g. Debian Installer,

), not just boot loader (e.g. RedBoot,

). More over, I'd like to find an installer capable to install to a board without display and keyboard, only containing ethernet and serial ports, (e.g. EP80219 from Embedded Planet,

).

Thank you.

The debian installer uses isolinux which is part of the syslinux package. You probably need a boot image that has syslinux.cfg edited to include the line:

serial 0 115200

or just

serial 0 9600

depending on your baud rate. You will also need to append to the kernel command line the equivalent console=ttyS0,115200n8 type option.

After that I'd expect the installation to proceed just fine as long as you pick english language. Serial install in unicode does not sound very likely. ;-)

It's been a while since I've tried this. Here are some useful googled pages:
