And I just failed the reading comprehension test. Sorry, that was not 
the case you were asking about:

I can't directly answer the "how long" question, but the above seems to 
indicate that you might have your console directed to somewhere 
unexpected. Are you expecting the output to come to the video console or 
the serial port? Be aware that Solaris doesn't always make the same 
decision OBP does on this.
