If you don't get any response at all, then something is really wrong
with either the machine, the serial port, or the cable. Personally,
I would suspect the cable, as generally those Suns just keep working
and working, but it may be that the port was damaged by something
that was plugged into it at some time.
Even if there is no memory in the machine, it will still actually
print out a message saying that the selftest failed.
