Well, I don't know if I accidentally did something to fix it or if it just
needed more time. After a suggestion received via a private reply I tried
to check the console setting via the front panel. Using the procedures I
found online I never could get it to display anything that looked like the
code that indicates the console setting. While I was in another room
surfing the 'net for more console setting procedures the language code entry
screen appeared on the twinax terminal. I'm up to the point of installing
licensed internal code now. Well, actually it's initializing one of the
disk drives. The eta it's giving for that task alone is two hours.
