Re: grub.conf

It might be easier to do this in %post rather than modify anaconda. 
This is how we enable output to both serial port and physical console:

# enable serial console in grub
sed -e '12i\
serial --unit=0 --speed=9600 -word=8 --parity=no --stop=1\
terminal --timeout=7 serial console' /boot/grub/grub.conf >/tmp/grub &&
mv /tmp/grub /boot/grub/grub.conf
# enable serial console in linux
sed -e '/kernel \/vmlinuz-2/s/$/ console=ttyS0,9600n8 console=tty0 /g'
/boot/grub/grub.conf >/tmp/grub && mv /tmp/grub /boot/grub/grub.conf

I think that you would want to eliminate "console" and "console=tty0"
from the above two lines respectively, to only enable the serial output.
