(I did an su to get something into the logs to mark a starting point.)

Here, I insert the tulip into slot 1. It continiously prints this stuff
out, and from the fuzzy pattern wizzing by the console, it appears that
it will just print out the same pattern as long as I have the card inserted.

I did remove the NIC, and though I cannot be certain, I believe that log
starts exactly where this pattern stops. It does print out a bunch more
stuff before settling down...

After that, the debug spew continues every second or so.

If you'd like to see something else, plz let me know now to get
it to boot up in serial-console mode (and change run-level to 3 instead of
5 as I have it set now...)
