No mainly because I saw little point at first as I have had great luck
with the Woody ISO I have on other machines.  If I can't get this to
boot, then perhaps I shall try Sarge.  Any other ideas on a work-around?

Any idea how to find it's location (ie: what to look for) in OBP and set
it?  I have tried removing the CG6 and plug the monitor directly into
the on-board and I get no signal.  I'll check again, but I thought there
was at least one vSIMM in it...
