I hate to post the usual "me-too" post, but I see exactly the same behaviour
on a friend's SparcServer 670MP. The box in question has 3 of those combined
cards in it, plus another on the mainboard. No joy in booting that box, we
had to go NetBSD...
BTW, I *know* that the MPs are not supported (yet), but that was not what
kept them from booting. The whole idea was to try and make it work on an
MP boxy. Oh well.

Cheers,
