This link talks about having two cards. But on some hardware (SunBlade 100 for
example) you need it even if you have only one card, because the ATI
framebuffer code the kernel locks up hard.

When booting from hard disc or CD-ROM parameters are passed at the SILO boot:
prompt, which you get AFTER you have done "boot disk" or "boot cdrom" at the
OpenBoot prompt. I have never net-booted, but it looks from the instructions
as if SILO isn't involved. So I don't know how you would get the boot
parameters passed to the kernel. Anyone else know?
