boot 3/tftp suffices for both the 3MIN and the MAXine.

For the MAXine /dev/console has to be linked to /dev/ttyS0 to see
something appear on the serial terminal when INIT starts.

Very cool! Almost unbelievable running Linux on the 3MIN and the
MAXine. :-) `less` hangs both machines, it refuses any input after
exiting it with `q`... Time to get me a full blown cross-compiler.
