Um....when I loaded Darwin on my 7500 back when it
first came out and had to deal with its
OpenFirmware, I'm 100% sure that I could not pull up
the OF console without using a serial cable hooked
up to another mac and using its vterm.
I thought this was true for all
PowerMac 7500s because there was a firmware bug. (I
did see a forth patch which may or may not have
fixed this problem.)

ps. good to see someone else using a 7500.
