3.0 for i386
On some PC's, stop-a (via right-control-f1 a) doesn't take the emulated sun3 to the prom monitor.  This makes it difficult to load an operating system (when it is needed to boot from tape inside TME).
Boot, then enter the stop-a key sequence.
cp my-sun3-eeprom.txt my-sun3-eeprom-st.txt
then change the boot device from "sd" to "st", then generate new eeprom.bin with tme-sun-eeprom.

Reference this st-boot eeprom for use when needed to boot from tape, and use the regular sd-boot eeprom when needed to boot from disk.

fredette is status observer now and thus can't fix this
