I inherited a used but functional HP9000/433S box that is functional,
but I can't seem to get SYS_INST or SYS_UBOOT to do anything useful
(like not even give me a prompt). 

I have gotten it to recognize a FreeBSD rbootd server, and give me the
option of picking SYS_INST.  When I pick that option, it says booting
system, and then the local screen stays blank. 

This system is set up for local console, with an HP-HIL Keyboard and

This is from the 1.5 CD set. 

Any hints would be greatfully accepted.
