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.
