  While having my oil furnace replaced with a natural gas one, the crew
managed to shut all power off the my office.
  Everything came up again except for my X terminal: a sun3/60 + 660Mb
disk and CG4.
  Symptom: it could not find the SCSI disk. I plugged the drive into another
sun3 that I have. No problem, but no CG4 in that machine.
  I have another machine (on loan) with a CG4 in it, but with apparently
too old a monitor to allow the system to boot with CG4 (that is what I was
told when it was loaned to me). 
  With a serial terminal, the second machine stops after testing the memory
(even in diag mode with the keyboard unplugged).
  OKAY, I thinks: download the Xkernel and use the original machine (having
backed the relevant portions of the disk to another machine, something I 
intended to do for some time)
  OOPS, no ID prom. OOPS, no ethernet address. I may try put an ethers
entry for 0:0:0:0:0:0, but I figure swapping the ID prom is better...

  WHERE IS IT? Please don't point me at a web page, since I got no graphics
terminal, just this PC console :-)
  Thank you.
