OK, I've got only one more minor annoyance with the kernel now.  Ever since
the March sources (and up to May 25), whenever I boot the kernel I can see
it load the /netbsd file and then a few lines of devices before the screen
turns completely black.  Fortunately I have xdm in my rc.local file;
otherwise this would be a major problem rather than just an annoyance.  X
eventually shows up, and when I shutdown the computer the text screen
reappears with the last screen from boot time.

Any ideas?  I'm using the pccons driver, i386 architecture, and a mach32
video card.
