Hi,

Michael Schroeder has written a console driver that only uses
functions from the ARCS prom and therefore should work on all
SGIs. The disadvantage is that it is not very fast and it needs
the RAM area reserved for the PROM. But you'll get a nice console
on IMPACT machines and other.

enjoy,
adrian
