Thanks Rob. Actually, turns out the monitor wasn't the issue. I
discovered that these Octanes sometimes require some TLC:
Once I applied the proper pressure, it came right up. Well... kinda.
It appears that the integrated NIC is busted - it reports PCI errors
during POST & when I try to netboot.
So.. anyone have a spare XIO NIC or pci board for one of these?
