Don't feel so bad; the Ultra AX is a nightmare.

*nods* If you need a hand with testing, let me know. I'll do what I can,
but I don't have a floppy drive for this sun4u here. It's got one, but
it doesn't have a DS0 jumper, so it can't boot off it correctly.
Also, does ANYONE know why this thing insists on hard locking when I
switch virtual consoles a bit too quickly? I can reproduce it with ease,
but I can't isolate the timing that's necessary to cause the hard lock.
It's 2.2.1 with the Mach64 vfb on it, and an ATI Mach64 PCI 2M in the
machine. Suggestions and/or solutions would be much appreciated.
