I will check that setting on the config switches.  I am using a cable that
should have them and the USB serial should as well.  I thought I set
it to ignore those, but I could have the sense of the switch wrong.

I'm using the miniroot right now, but might have to try to make an installed
file-system image or something.  I need to spend some more time testing it.
Getting kernels into the miniroot and copied over to be an emulated did is a
pain right now.

I'll look into that if it isn't a 1 bit topcat as Miod mentioned.
Thanks for the feedback.
