No, the system hangs completely before it gets to the login prompt.
However, I can drop into ddb on the console.
As an experiment today, I moved the disk into another Challenge S in my
collection, this time with a R4400 CPU. So far, I haven't had any hangs
on the R4400 system, I can login, compile programs, access the network
and everything works normally. That suggests to me that problem may be
R5000 specific, maybe a cache issue?
