Well, this isn't the monitor, of course.  Your system is probably
dying a horrible death and not producing any video output.

Well, it's not a good idea to put both disks on the same controller
anyway.  What happens if you put the disks on the primaries of each
controller, and the CD-ROMS on the secondaries?  If that doesn't help,
does the system at least work without the 45 GB drive?  Anyway, how
far do you get in the book process?  Can you get into single user mode
the way you are now?
