Speaking of which, does anyone know how to get a DEC 3000/300 to
autoboot despite startup self-test errors? (I've looked in my manual,
but nothing suggests itself in the way of environment variables to set.)
The framebuffer in my 3000/300 appears to have stuck-at faults in the
RAM, and so fails its test. Accordingly, I have to boot it manually
every time there is a power problem or it otherwise does a hard reset.
Admittedly, this is a minor problem, as it doesn't need booting from the
PROM very often, but it would be nice if it would auto-boot upon power
on. (Ditto for my DECstation 3100.)
