No.  Yes.  Yes.  OK.

It seems that the grf0 is not picking up my RasterOps 208 card very well,
because it doesn't seem to report anything about my screen.  Indeed, I
don't see any screen size info anywhere, but I do see a nubus unconfigured
during bootup.  So I fear I will be unable to make much use of macbsd,
cause the adb hanging problem just drives me crazy.  Oh well.

Almost ready to give up,
