Make sure you have the S3 switch down and you have your terminal set to some
sort of  VT100 type thing and 9600,8,n,1 At boot it should state the cpu
type and some information regarding the status of the tests. In all
likelyhood the problem is with your terminal's settings, but hey you might
have a borked port who knows.
