iOpener Update

I'm getting closer! When I see the splash screen, I hit TAB and saw the
following Award BIOS startup screen:

        Award Modular BIOS V4.51PG
        Copyright (C) 1984-99, Award Software, Inc.


        IDT WinChip C6 CPU at 200MHz
        Memory Test : 30720 + 2048K shared memory

        Award Plug and Play BIOS Extension v1.0A
        Copyright (C) 1999, Award Software, Inc.
            Suggested SDRAM CAS Latency Time is " 2 "
            Detecting IDE Primary Master ... None
            Detecting IDE Primary Slave ... SunDisk SDTB-128

        Your i-opener is undergoing a necessary update. This may
        take 30 minutes or more. If for some reason the service
        is not working correctly within an hour, please contact
        Technical Support at 1-800-298-9525 to report the problem.

        Press DEL to enter SETUP

When I hit CTRL-ALT-HOME, I get a "login:" prompt. The HOME,4 combo doesn't
get me a root prompt.

So close, and yet so far!! :-)
