Yes, I did.  There's definetely a video signal.  I get the white background
 as expected.  The impression I get is that OF has not loaded fully.  I type
 commands such as reset-all, bye, etc. and nothing happens.  So, it's not
 that I'm just not seeing the prompt and banner.  I would presume the system
 is just dead, but I can zap the pram and still boot into OS9 just fine.
