The kernel command option you gave me, simxxxx, appeared to
work last night. Am I switching off disconnects, I've not 
looked at the source?

However it occured to me this morning that
serial console input worked last night at run level 2, using 
the same kernel as above, I never noticed as I typed using it. 

Graphical console has never worked for me over the last two
weeks since getting installed (even with a getty attached to 
tty0 :), keyboard has always appeared dead.

Still having make dep problems, I may investigate which version of make
i'm using this weekend.

The 715/33 is surprisingly spritely with 48MB of ram, not bad for oldie.
