Probably. Could be the BIOS, but I think the kernel installs a handler.

It *does* crash the whole thing. You just had luck that during the crash  
it eventually encounters an invalid opcode somewhere.

Could you send links to the necessary files (specific versions of KEYB,  
DISPLAY, MODE, CPIDOS, etc) to create that floppy, or to an image? I can  
try debugging it (need test cases anyway).
