I was sure S3 was at the right position until I talked to Ragge. The
button is sunken and I cannot change it. A picture here:
I thought it was at the right position because I get to the SRM prompt
if I connect my VT520, but _only_ if I get the LCSPX card removed.
What I thought before:
* The LCSPX card is faulty and nothing appears on the console. If I
remove the card I can access SRM via the console -> so S3 switch might
be at the right position.
What I'm thinking now (after investigation and sugestions from Ragge):
* The S3 switch might be at the wrong position and that is why I don't
get any output from the console if I have LCSPX plugged in. If I
remove the LCSPX card, the system falls back to console as default
input/output device and that is why I can access SRM via console.
I'm in the process of reading the VAXstation 4000/90 documentation and
see if I can override the S3 button state somehow. As Ragge suggested,
I compiled a kernel without spx but got no different results.
