Hi, folks,

	First the problem I'm having...

	SPARCstation IPC, 32MB RAM, ver. 1.6 PROM, NetBSD 1.4.1. When I use the
standard Sun keyboard and graphics console, everything works just grand.

	However, when I disconnect the KB and monitor, and try to use the serial
console on port A, NetBSD starts to boot and then goes into a panic halt.

	Is there some parameter I need to configure if I'm going to use a serial
console on the beastie instead of the graphics?

	Next, my question...

	I have two other SPARCstations, an IPX and a SPARCClassic, with ver. 2.6
boot PROMs. Can I safely copy the version 2 for the IPC, or will it toss
its cookies?

	Thanks in advance.
