Sounds like you're sitting at the OpenBoot PROM prompt. What is the hardware you're on?

Try entering --> boot disk

I am using xterm to access server.  I do not see the console when booting.  Trying to find someone who knows what box this is.

Until then any ideas you may have that I can try.  This is a test environment but we need to be running quickly.
