Just to clarify, by "slot", you don't mean 'backplane slot', you mean 'socket
(on the card)', right?

Also, note that the console/diagnostic ROM is a different size (bit-wise; I'm
not sure about the physical package) from the bootstrap ROMs.

I'd leave that, too, until we get the software console to run when started
manually - at the moment, the ROM's not working, so that switch is irrelevant.
