SUMMARY: 280R stuck at prom - no response

I was indeed correct: I had to power cycle. Incidentally the key was NOT in
the lock position. Now I have to see if I can convince security to let me
use the RSC port. 

And remeber children (myself included) always do a reset (after
auto-boot=false) so the stupid thing doesn't hang.

I think I know the answer to this one but... (as in the driving option) 

Brand new 280r running OS, I init 0 to prom so I can install my own OS,
issue watch-net-all to find the required qfe port.

server hangs.....

I am connected through a terminal server and the server is 40 miles away.
Any way of getting out of this? Other than driving 40 miles and flicking a
keyswitch, then driving 40 miles back? I've tried a 'send break' from telnet
but that doesn't seem to be working. 

Any help would be much appreciated.
