Using a kernel built from recent (94020?) sources, it was impossible
for me to boot without the keyboard attached. As soon as I plugged it
in, the boot proceeded. I don't like this, since I sometimes want to
run my computer without a keyboard. Can this be changed? While I'm at
it: is it possible to boot/run NetBSD without any graphics card?
I mean just a mainboard with a hard disk and an ethernet card.
