On i386 (I assume that's what you're running, given the name of the
bootloader) the boot loader doesn't exist after the kernel has
started, as far as I know.  If you get a prompt which says "db> ",
you're talking to DDB.  If you're not, I'd like to know what
*exactrly* you get on the console if you replug the console cable.
