Replying to my own message.  Hmmm....

Since writing this, I have found that using serial console allows 
me to get much further.  I can now get all the way through booting, 
but the "Terminal type? [sun]" prompt doesn't respond to input.  
I don't know whether it's hung or just not getting input properly.

I've tried pulling out all PCI cards, motherboard cache, and various 
amounts of memory, with no change in symptoms.

Ideas, anyone?
