Serial console is 9600N81.  I don't know how it's working with a
Daystar accelerator.  If you have the caches enabled, disable them
before booting.  It's possible that there are differences between
different revisions of the accel.  I don't know.

All of the kernels should run on a MacII.  With the powercache in there,
it's not the same machine as a stock II--the processor is clocked 3-4 times
faster and is an '030 instead of and '020...  It also has an external
cache that we are not taking into account in the OS.

Apparently Brad got it to work somehow, but I know that others have not.
