Heh.  You do need a serial cable and another computer, but it's not too

Yeah, OK, I got a cable, plugged it in, run cu(1) on one end, and added a new entry to the /boot.cfg on the other end:

        menu=Serial/Single/Verbose/Debug:consdev com0; boot -svx

Then just boot, and things magically work!

Thanks for the clue-by-four
