Not a specific NetBSD question, but I saw a ton of hardware specific
questions on this list, so I figure I give ya''l a shot.. :)
I am inheriting a PC164 motherboard, with what I think is a 400 or

I never get a video signal, or any other indication of life other than
and power supply fans running.
