Okay - that may well be. I had a "boot bsd" in boot.conf which was
probably left from trying to get a serial console working with a bad
cable. The Box boots without that line, so probably you'r right
about the timeout, because I use Solaris tip which exits between
boot and kernel messages.
I just take your word that it works and check it out later today,
with some other terminal emulation program.
