Hi everyone!

I've been using the GENERIC #42 kernel quite happily for about a month now
on my IIsi 17/80, Ansante EtherNet, external 240MB HD.  However, I don't have
an extra monitor to spare.  This is fine most of the time -- I'm primarily
using it on the network anyway.  However, whenever I want to reboot, I have
to unplug the monitor and keyboard off my PowerMac and hook it up to the IIsi
because System 7.0 will not boot without a monitor attached!  Has anyone found
a work around for this problem?  My PowerMac 7500 (with sys 7.5.2) boots fine
without a monitor, but 7.5.2 won't install on the si.

Aside from this, I have been _extremely_ happy with everything about NetBSD,
and am eagerly awaiting 1.1!

Thanks in advance,
