Well ... yes. (I just had to set a B180L to mode 12 on graphics(0) 
manually from the serial console as that seems to be the only way to make 
it work with an A4033A with the usual 3-BNC cable.)

Now that I think about it ... I probably had to use pci(4) or some such 
once on a C360 but then again that one didn't have a built-in adapter.

Oh, and really, my Linux-running C240 still has the console on serial - 
_and_ X and a bunch of virtual terminals also available on the graphics
