You must comment out the line
tty00   "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600"   unknown off secure
in your /etc/ttys. Otherwise it will change the keyboard speed
to 9600 and it will end to respond.

Yes, if it's a /m38 you can have 32MB in it without problem.

If you're having a 1.3 config, you need to update it. Just fetch the
latest config source and compile it.
