	When the screen goes blank it probably means that your gfx card is
not supported.  I *think* that unless it says something like "bit mapped
graphics at console" or something similar it won't work... I'm told that
any card in the SCG slot doesn`t work...

	After working through the above problem now I'm stuck on the fact
that I'm trying to install via NFS and can't seem to get ANYTHING to
happen after setting all of my paramters-- "server path"-- what is this?
The dir where the miniroot is? including the miniroot file?
