    6363    Execute a final script before rebooting the machine at the end of the restoration. Could be an NFS shared script e.g., or a script located on the restored disk or in the initrd.
    6464
     65serial=/dev/ttySx
     66    When using a serial console, associate it to the tty device so it works correctly at restore time. By default set up /dev/ttyS0 as serial console. Pass the value of your serial console if different.
     67
    6568textonly
    6669    do not call any Newt library routines; this is unattractive but valuable if you find your Newt library has bugs in it or on ia64
