new twist - "888" - TCP/IP configuration problem - en0 busy on IBM 580

original problem:

I'm doing a conplete rewrite of AIX 4.2.1 onto a 580 machine.  When I turn the
key to to NORMAL the boot progresses normally through the start of the dpid2
daemon.  Then nothing further shows up on the screen.  It won't go to the login
prompt.  I've then tried to configure TCP/IP in service mode so that I might be
able to telnet in but always get the message that the en0 is busy and can't
configure.  Any ideas?

new twist:

When I do a "diag" and run the test on "all devices" the machine goes to "888".

If I test "all devices" without the parallel port the system comes back with no
errors.

If I test only the parallel port it again goes to "888" with the following
codes as I cycle through:

888 102 300 0c8 ccc 103 804 827 c01 100 200 300 400 500 626

then the cycle repeats

Help

I think dpid2 is in /etc/rc.tcpip.  What's after that?  Tried commenting
anything out of that initialization script or any that follow?  Tried
commenting anything out of the inittab and rebooting?
