I have a Sunfire x4100 M2 that powers up but won't boot either with the 
"on" button or "start"-ing at /SYS. No amber lights on the outside. Any 
wisdom would be appreciated.

Server worked fine until the cold, they are out in the garage due to 
sound volume. The event list shows:

Took me a while to figure out how to get to that point; wound up with an 
old IBM T30 running Fedora 14 with Minicom going over an old Cisco 
management cable. Not quite old school but it did bring back fond (and 
frustrating) memories.
