Did you try Ctrl-\ and ctrl-break as well ? My recollections of breaking
into those things might be a bit skewed but it always ended up with several
reboots and some serious pounding on the keyboard, just before it starts
complaining about bcheckrc. Yes, that's scientific.

I'd love to get the tapes for a 310. I've got one running basic and
I've got distribution tapes from 4.x to 5.x for 9000/500 and from 7.x
to 9.x for 9000/300 (no support for 310, I think).

Anyway, try pounding the keyboard heavily. Think of it as your enemy.
Have no mercy.
