On the old-style keyboards, the sequence was
left-Alt + left-Command + * (on the numeric keypad)
All but the very earliest Turbos came with an ADB keyboard, though, and I did
not get any manuals with my Turbo machines, so I'm not quite sure how the key
sequence for hard reset was transformed. I could hunt around on this keyboard,
but I wouldn't want to upset my hard drive with a hard reset :-)
I think it's basically the same, but the Command key may have moved.

I tried it on a NeXTstation Turbo (monochrome) and got to "Check serial
port A for console". However, I don't see anything on serial port A.
What baud rate should I use? I've tried 9600 8N1 and 19200 8N1.
As far as I can tell, the machine completely locks up after printing
that message; I can't break into the ROM Monitor with
Command-Command-`, and the power key doesn't do anything either. I have
to unplug the power and plug it back in... (I'm not familiar with NeXTs
though; perhaps there's some other way to force a reset that I don't
know of :)
