Hrm... So, what is a possible course of action? Should I investigate
getting a new PROM? Is there a good source of troubleshooting info
for Sun3's that I'm missing?

Also, How long does it take to perform these tests? Maybe I'm not
giving it long enough, it hangs at that test for about a minute. And
shouldn't I still get at least some output on the serial line?
Something that says "Hey, this test failed" like I believe Sun4's do?

Thanks again for all your help.
