    Hello all,

    I got an used U60 (dual 360Mhz, 512Mb ram, 9Gb SCSI disk, Creator 3d)
    but I don't see anything on a connected monitor or terminal connected
    to ttya.

    Meanwhile I was able to get into POST and to see the POST messages via
    Teraterm, but after POST there is the same behaviour as above.

    In the following the begining and the end of the POST:

    Power-on your U60 with only the ttya connected, and give us the output.

    Unplug the keyboard before you turn it on.

    Ok,

    this was the first trick!

    Now I do see the OPB output on the terminal!

    The machine tries to boot via the network. How can I cancel these tries
    and enter the OPB command mode?

    Send it (the Sun) a break, using whatever key-combo your emulation
    SW uses.
