Brain fart. I'd turned off portmap on both systems, commented the RPC stuff
(as well as everything else but telnet and ftp) out of inetd.conf on one
system, but forgot to do it to the other; I'd seen the problem on the first,
and assumed that it was the same there when in fact it wasn't. Commenting
everything out did indeed fix the problem.

There may be a console interaction, but I can't reproduce it. It was
probably just me being impatient with the system...after all, it *does* boot
