+1 here - having the text mode is an outstanding feature, especially
when you combine it with serial logging. And yes, on all the machines
with no serial I do installation over ssh, too.

Also great is netbooting - learned that installation method years ago as
"jumpstart" in solaris an use it whenever possible. It's amazing how
flawless that concept works on small ARM SoC with uboot over serial lines.

Thanks from my side too and hoping for an opportunity (time!) to try on
the old sun iron still beeing in our basement.
