Erm. not really I'm afraid... Thinking about it the only real difference
that I can think of was I had a keyboard/mouse installed. Before I was using
a vt100 terminal. I realise that should work but maybe a missing keyboard
caused it to barf?
I could have untearred the tarfile from an nfs mount onto the linux box
before but I can't see that having an effect...
Any ideas on the console size thing? This could just be a cofiguration thing
I've never bothered to look at before on linux but I can't see where...
