symptoms that happen when the serial cable is un-terminated, and
reflects the transmitted data back down the recieved data line. The
result is that the NSLU2 stops the boot because it thinks it sees data
coming from the console to interrupt the boot.
If not, then I would look for something similar that might stop the boot
-- perhaps a defective power or reset button?
