One doesn't.  That's the problem that one must surmount.  In the case of
the IIvx, the system worked well enough that someone booted to the shell
prompt in single-user mode.  They were then brilliant enough to set up
a SL/IP connection on it, working through the installer and having
access to another machine that ran a slip server.  This allowed them to
get to the machine w/o a working console keyboard.  The Duo doesn't even
boot that far, so you're out of luck on using that approach.

I think that a further understanding of the IIsi/IIvx ADB will allow us
to have more of a clue about the Duo.
