  You can also set the color in locore.s in the startup code to be sure
you are getting that far.  I usually just set the color directly:
	movw	#0xf00,0xdff180
Putting on right after start: should indicate that you got to the kernel
entry point.  Adding another just before the jsr _start_c will let you
know you got to that point.

  I've got a kernel created from the 940513 sources and it works fine on
both my 68040 systems (A4000+Warp Engine, and A2000+PPI Zeus).
