So... its a 9pin serial to a 3.5mm stereo jack, but I can't find the cable, or rather I can find 3 cables of this type but some are for disk arrays and I am not sure which is which!

Can anyone tell me assuming shield is ground which out of pin/ring is TX or RX? If you have a cable multimeter and 10 seconds of your time would be appreciated :D Pin 2 on serial is RX, Pin 3 is TX and Pin 5 if ground.

Thanks Capn. To answer my own question though as I made a breakthrough!:
Code:
DB9 - Signal    - 3.5mm
Pin 2 RX        - TIP
Pin 3 TX        - Ring
Pin 5 - Ground  - Surround/Ground

Turns out the other leads I had (I think from a NetApp disk array) were wired the opposite way round, with TX on the tip and RX on the ring.
