Resetting OpenFirmware to use gfx card instead of serial console?

Hi all,

Apologies if this is too much OT. I am still trying to get my 43p-150 to
boot. A while back I had removed the graphics card (GXT3000) and worked
through the console since then. Last night I put it back in and now
OpenFirmware will no longer ask me if I want to use the console or the
video card as output. Is there any way I can tell OpenFirmware to use
the graphics card? Below is the output from printenv. As you can see the
input & output device is set to com1 although it will bring up CDE when
I boot the currently installed Aix. How can I change it to use the
graphics card again so I get the SMS menu etc. back on my monitor?
