	Video on the Sun doesn't start until the self tests are
finished.  This is a fair amount of time even on my 4/260.  You pretty
well have to stare at the little line of LEDs on the back.

	The diag switch makes the console a 9600 7E1 on ttya.
However, this console starts doing things at the same time that the
video would.
