the kernel in the net48xx image has been compiled with sio0 flags of 0x30.
this forces a serial console instead of a vga console, hence you will get
the observation i noticed above. one way of forcing a vga console is to
set the sio0 flags to 0x10 and recompile a kernel or use a kernel.conf in
/boot with the line 'f sio0 0x10' to change the flags.
