Happy to report that RC1 CDROMs boot 'out of the box' (ie, no
arguments to the SILO boot prompt of any sort required) on the Ultra 5
in our office.

Unfortunately, after the first reboot, I get the error:

  "The file just loaded does not appear to be executable"

from OpenBOOT. Seems like the SILO install is borked somewhere. I'll
try doing an expert install and see what happens.
