    Now that you mention it, the first time I booted it it *looked*
    like it hung at about that point, but I was trying the Sun
    12x16 (or whatever) font, and it was unreadable.

    So, I *might* have had that problem, but after it hung, I booted
    into text mode, it worked, then compiled a 8x8 Pearl font bzImage,
    and now 124 works great:
