I'm beginning to think that the problem is the boot-floppies kernel
not getting along with the Cube. I've set up dhcp and tftp, I can boot
via 'boot enet:,yaboot', yaboot loads correctly, it reads yaboot.conf
and loads the kernel (yaboot.conf is attached to this message), and
then I get the DO-QUIESCE nuttiness again. 

Some questions:

 1. Does the resolution of the
    fb matter at all (I'm running at 1280x1024 right now)?
 2. Is there a set of 2.4-based boot-floppies out there somewhere that
    I can try? 
 3. Is there something else I need to be adding to the append=

I'm going to try to netboot a 2.4-based kernel. If that works, I'll
report back. In the meantime, any assistance would earn my deepest
