I finally figured out to type "boot -h" at the okay prompt,
and then it starts printing the usual info about devices found,
at the wrong baud rate.

How do I set the baud rate?

It then gets to

	ATA PseudoRAID loaded
	Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/md0

and hangs.  No response to the keyboard.

Now what?
