the STOP-N trick didn't work. So I did unplug the keyboard and got the 
console on the serial port. It gets to the point where the kernel 
panics, and I get two registers dumped. It then attempts to reboot if i 
hit a key, and again the same... Doesn't sound good.

I can reinstall the OS I guess, but I suspect this is going to fail if 
the card is bad. I guess if it does, I know for a fact. Anybody has a 
UPA Creator 3D?
