By default with no config changes, it starts up with a white screen.
Can't see a terminal to begin with.  When you move the mouse, it leaves a
trail of 'X' pointers (this is in 8-bit mode).  The other modes behave a
little differently, but none are usable.

I discovered another interesting thing about the mouse button emulation.
I still do not get the emulation, although the button will not act up
(thinking the button is pressed when it isn't, or the button "sticking")
as root.  Under a normal user, it acts up.  (All of this is w/Xpmac).

This is not a 3400 or a Pismo--it is a 266mhz G3 w/the Mach64 video.  I
thought it was called a Wallstreet.
