If not, once the FreeBSD kernel is loaded, it will continue booting on the VGA console instead of the serial port. And you won't see a thing in your minicom/hyperterminal session.
For what it's worth, adding "console=" to a memdisk command line is a
total waste of time.
Neither memdisk nor whatever it is booting (FreeBSD, in this case) will
do anything with it.
