I should probably try booting the 486 kernel on the P5 to see if it
gets further... (although, because of differing config files it
shouldn't be able to get *much* further...)

In my case, the keyboard also seems wedged tight, as toggling
CAPS-LOCK doesn't update lights...

that isn't there right now in the 486 kernel, which might be an issue.
