i've been doing this as root the whole time.  which is the stumper (i should 
have mentioned that in the original email, but that's what i get for trying
to send email out quick before i go to bed at 2am)

they show up as scc0 and scc1.  which don't exist in /dev since i need to be
using tty[abcd]

/dev/ttys shows that /dev/ttyc would be the non-console serial line.  i'm 
guessing that's right?  but on the other hand it's setup to have getty start
on that line and it never does.
