Thanks for trying, but I'm not suffering from that bug. I always remove the 
quiet and splash parameters. The screen is really, really blank. No cursor in 
sight. I have several network disks mounted, (like /home), but they are all 
NFS4 shares.

(On a side note, I can't use vga= as a boot parameter. Framebuffer doesn't seem 
to work for this video card)
