Pass TERM=vt100 or TERM=vt102 at boot time. Current init process does not
enforce TERM settings anymore ;(( I don't know wether I will enable it again
or just let the user pass TERM=xxx at boot time. Maybe a serial target for
silo could also be helpful for floppy boot.
On this topic, do you know about a way of identifying the type of console
connected to the serial line ? Is there an escape sequence that returns vt100
or the like ?
