Hmm.. well, I was having a problem like this with my friends machine. It
was a Cyrix 586 120 though. We managed to fiddle around in the BIOS long
enough get it to work. I can't remember which exact setting it was, but
it seems to me it was a write back cache or something.. (hmmm.. I wish I
could remember) Anyway, we fiddled long enough, and got it to work. :)
