It "boots" to the ! prompt at least there's that.

The half-populated M7891 is plugged into the DD11-CF, slot 3. I am unsure
if one can put an M7891 into a slot that has no NPG jumper installed, so I
always use slot 3 for this card in the DD11-CF. I would have to check, or
whether I can put this card into a DD11-B or a slot without the NPG

Typing *anything* kills the system. When I type say rlunix or foobar or
whatever and hit enter, the prompt returns to the next line and the CPU
stops. The system crashes, unresponsive, requiring restart from the front
