I'm not sure about the console, but some of us have a hacked version
of dt which accepts stdin as input instead of adb, so we can use the
IIsi monitor with a remote keyboard. For myself, I use my IIsi
keyboard plugged into my powerbook, which is the serial console. Once
I logon, I invoke dt, then I never have to use my powerbook screen.
I'm not sure if someone else has been able to get the output right on
the IIsi monitor upon boot.
