It boots on the IIfx with "Serial Switch" set to "compatible" -- sorry,
I thought I'd done that.

ADB is detected on the IIfx (but not the LC III); the boot screen says:
 "adb: IOP ISM driver v0.4 for Unified ADB."  On the LC III, I currently
need a serial console to login.

The IIfx boots all the way to a login screen using my Debian 3.1
installation.  Unfortunately, the ADB keyboard doesn't work -- possibly
a keymap problem, or maybe something getting set incorrectly in the
Debian 3.1 rc scripts.  I'll try installing a later version from Debian
