Yeah, it's kinda weird with the floppy, it'll make the
noises like it's trying to start and just sit there,
Same thing with the IDE drives.
   Have tried to boot from CD as well. The FreeBSD
will start and get hung after loading uhcio (??) and
I'll have to power cycle the system. Windows 2000
install hangs when it tries to start Windows 2000.

Sigh.. and it's such a nice board otherwise....
