I got the lifimage from the 2001-11-18 set that's on master.  I managed to
watch the boot enough times to see what's causing me a problem: it's not
seeing the HID keyboard at all and claims that it's not there.  I tried
unplugging the mouse from the keyboard (just in case), which didn't
help.  I did manage to get it booted once with the keyboard recognised,
but it behaved very badly and finally just stopped working when I was
trying to partition the disks.

That's an idea.  I may see what happens on the other 735 that I have (I
can always swap the disks).  I just found it odd that the kernel didn't
recognise it, but the keyboard worked fine when I was messing with the
boot options.
