We're having such difficulty with this that we would try any method. It's not something I have any experience of, though.

Knoppix boots up to a point, but once it reaches the graphical part the serial terminal doesn't send any more data. I will try a different flavour of Linux...

Unfortunately it has serial console access only. There is no monitor output.

Thank you for this. Possibility 1 is what I will try first, because as mentioned last time I interrupted grub the whole thing just froze on me. It will be a little time before I can feedback on your suggestion as I am taking a well earned holiday next week, but I assure you I will keep you posted!
