I was mucking around trying to get the Challenge S booting
about 2 months ago.  There were problems then since this
machine doesn't have a graphics card.  Just got several
of the latest compiled kernels and still no luck.  Anyone
have a kernel which boots on these machines?  
TIA.  Cheers, Bill


-Looks like it is still probing for graphics.

^^ At least it catches the error now and doesn't
have to be hard booted.  ;p
