Seems OK to me apart from f3.txt.with26: see attached patch

The number of lines on a serial console depends on the console. We could
perhaps add an extra line making it 24 lines for a serial console but
probably best to leave alone for now as serial output is OK.

NB: I have only tested the netboot with serial console for this patch. I
have not tested the vga console.

 If unsure, you should use the default boot method, with no special
 parameters, by simply pressing enter at the boot prompt.
