You got it!  When I started this, I expected to get to a point
where the boot would fail due to a configuration problem(initrd).
However, since I didn't have the console set I didn't see this
happening (as I expected).

I'll dig the 'AUTOCONSOLE' code out of the SLES kernel and pass it
along to see if it may be 'acceptable'.
