Ok.. this seems to help a lot. It no longer panics, and I've
got a rom-image for my performa 6400, but when I tell it to
start with Meta-G, it just sits there.

This machine has a valkyrie graphics card, and since 
platinum seems to be more or less the only thing supported,
I can guess that's why I don't see anything.

Is that why? :)

Anyway.. it exits when I press Ctrl-C, so the machine is
alive and all.

One step in the right direction :)
