	I think that you should try Cmd-Opt-P-R before trying the
	serial cable, since it's easier and doesn't involve hooking
	the two computers... It may also be the case that booting with
	a MacOS CD (press "c" when you hear the chime at boot) resets
	the NVRAM.

	Anyway, since I also have had these problems with the mac not
	booting and me desperately trying to reset its parameters, I
	learned to ignore quik for trying a new, untried kernel: I
	always use a boot floppy for trying new kernels that I
	compile, until I'm sure the new kernel satisfies me.

	In fact, the mac that I'm using has its battery completely
	drained now and even if I set it up for using quik to boot, it
	won't remember those setting if it is turned off some more
	than one night.

	These are the two main reasons why I'm using a boot floppy
	with this PM9500.

	Hope this helps, Roger...
