this is rapidly becoming a FAQ... maybe I should add it to the FAQ page
(do you all promise to look at it if I do?)


there you go:

6.I'm using the Alpha 0.1 release CD and the machine stops after printing
  pdc_cons die !!
what's going on? 

The kernel on the CD is set up for serial port console. If you attach a
serial cable to the back of your machine then you should see messages
appearing on that console instead. You should be able to replace this
kernel with one which uses the STI console instead.

Revolutions do not require corporate support.
