[rescue] More fun with Indigo2

I found memory for my Indigo2 (4x32MB), got it hooked up, and I heard the
boot chime... but nothing on the monitor, stays in yellow-LED powersave
mode. It's an SGI monitor with the included cable, so I think it's
sync-on-green (hooked up my NEC 5FGe just to be sure this wasn't an odd
non-SOG video card, blank white screen there), but I'm not sure what else
to try. I've got a standard PS/2 keyboard, no mouse yet, and that's about
all that's connected.
Will Indigo2 boot from a serial console? I should have the appropriate
cable around here somewhere, but I don't want to risk my life digging for
it if it's not going to do any good.
Also, will a Sun 13W3 male-to-male cable work or does it have to be an
SGI-specific cable (with just 5 pins, it appears)?
