A couple of questions about your problem. Does the floppy get
to phase 2? 

If it gets to phase 2, did you make your own phase 2 image -- or did you
use the one that came with the machine. (These are stored in

If you generated the phase 2 image (either with 'beoboot' or through the
GUI -- you may have wound up with a kernel version mismatch. I suggest
reverting to /var/beowulf/boot.img as your phase 2 image and working
forward from there.
