When the machine would get to "le0: no carrier", the machine said SunOS Rel
With the FPU card pulled out it fails the boot with a constant

I'll pull the frame buffer and see if that makes a difference.
I have a Spac 1+ with a bad NVRAM. I was gonna swap between the two machines
and see if that provided any clues
