crap, this means there is a syntactical error in the bootscript... 

ill want you to try 0.27 (which will be out shortly) 

and if that still does not work ill need to see the ofboot.b on the
bootstrap partition itself to make sure nothing strange is in it..

mac-boot will not show such errors it simply starts looking for other
bootable devices.

from a cold boot?  it won't work with a soft reboot, you must totally
shutdown the machine and hold these keys while booting it. from the
looks of your nvsetenv output your nvram is corrupted (mine looked
like that after using the oldworld nvsetenv, it no longer has that
garbage after doing a reset)  in any event this may not be it given
you seem to have a corrupted bootscript.

wait for 0.27, i am going to beg Dan to package that one, it will need testing.

i know of a Japenese guy with one of these machines (i think so
anyway) who was having trouble with the output text not being
displayed, but the script worked.  0.27 fixes the output problem
