Except for the problem my machine is completely different.
P5/100 on TMC PCI54IT MB, 64MB Memory, AHA2940, #9 I128 or ATI MACH64, PAS16,
Teles S0/16.0 ISDN, 3COM 3C590 PCI, 4 SCSI-Disks, QIC525, HP DAT, Plextor 6xCD.
I boot using loadlin from config.sys because I don't know how to boot linux from
sdc1 with lilo. I got halfway used to not being able to do a reboot from linux.
(UnixWare and Solaris x86 have no problem) But as it looks like I'm not alone
I have some hope that this might get fixed some day.
BTW, I could not reboot since I got the P5 board, the rest of the system
changed a few times without affecting the problem

Just my 0.02 DM :)
