The unanimous decision was that I'm actually going to have
to look at the tag on the back of the machine (something I
was hoping to avoid). Also I learned that the serial number
displayed at boot time is actually the serial number of the
EEPROM and is not related to the CPU serial number on the
back of the machine. It would still be interesting to know how
to display the serial number of the EEPROM without rebooting.

Hey Dan, can I borrow those knee pads??
