I stand corrected. With booter 1.11.4a1 the machine ID came up as
*95*. 95 gives the garled video. 94 hangs.
89 worked (listing the machine as an LC475). At the time, I was only
using an unconfigured base install -- so I wasn't able to do much, but
at least I know it boots!
What surprised me (and my addmittely limited degree on knowledge about
many of the low level details here) -- the video address mappings
shown were the same...
Is this worth filing a pr over?
