Thanks to help from CJS and a lot of hair pulling, I've managed to
get NetBSD installed on the above hardware and booting OK. But
only if the keyboard isn't plugged in. If the keyboard is plugged
in, it fails to load the kernel. Specifically, after much playing
around with the boot program, it seems to wedge in the call to
prom_open() in devopen.

The NetBSD 1.2 loader worked fine, but unfortunately the kernel
didn't support the QLogic ISP SCSI controllers, which wasn't quite
what I wanted ...

I'm not familiar enough with the boot code to know where to look
next. Any ideas?
