There must be some way to get the hardware cursor to appear even without 
booting to ethernet or the disk drive...

I do have a disk drive, controller and disk packs, but as you mentioned 
it requires almost all the boards to be working, which may be very 
difficult if I can't gradually get things working and tested (such as 
the display board).

I have however confirmed with an o-scope that I am getting the correct 
video output from the video board, so I assume that board is working 
properly.  Now about a dozen more boards to go!
