I use quik with 2.4.27 on a 7600.  On that model, video support in OF
is unreliable. I connect a terminal emulater (minicom) via a serial
line to the modem port (which is where the OF I/O goes after resetting
the PRAM via command-option-P-R). I have this box configured headless,
so after it boots, it runs a login (getty) process on the serial line.

Let me know if you want my .config for 2.4.27
