Ok, i checked it. With Lilo things go right!
So there might be (there are probably) different circumstances at linux-boot
time that the kernel doesnt care about (at reset time). But i wonder why
it doesnt work on one but not on both machines?
I noticed another difference between the two machines, i.e. one board uses
an Winbond-MultiIO-Chip (the not resetting one), the other uses an CMD (i
think, but sure no Winbond). What kind of IO-Chip do you have?

I'll check the bios later.

Richard.
