Similar to the problem described above, my pds5k/25 does the same
with the current tftpimage-r3k-kn02 in woody:

   This DECstation is a Personal DS5000/xx

...and then it sits there, blinking cursor staring deep into my
soul. Hours pass and I decide to make my IQ deficiency a matter of
public record. I have no DEC keyboard or monitor. This is all via a
serial nullmodem and minicom from a PC running sid. Suggestions?
TFTP install of NetBSD 1.52 works flawlessly. No extra cards, floppy
drive or SCSI devices other than the HDD. Upgraded to 40MB of RAM.
Also tried "setenv console 3" just for kicks. Same result as above.

This is my first debian mipsel attempt. Just want to add a mipsel
box to my buildfarm so I can test mipsel builds of custom packages.
