Bricked my kurobox

I have no data on the drive yet. I could wipe the whole thing, but
I imagine that might take an hour or two, which translates into an
additional evening spent working on this.

As I understand it, the JTAG cable will give the thing a serial
console, which would allow me to do a single-user boot and then
fix the problem by hand.

I suppose another alternative would be to put the gentoo tarball
back onto the drive while it's in the usb enclosure, then
stick it back in the kurobox. I'm not sure if that would be enough,
though, and any further configuration of gentoo on the drive would
probably fail since the kurobox is a ppc and my other systems are
all x86.
