I have a sparc1 attached via null modem to my main server.  When I shut down the
main server.. it immediately drops the sparc to the boot prom.  I'm wondering
if there is a way to prevent this behavior from the sparc.  It is incredibly
annoying to have to lose both machines if I crash the main server somehow, or
need to take it down to upgrade it.  Is there a prom command perhaps to resume
execution and come back to life?
