Hi Ralf,
        Missed the subject the last time, so here it is again.
The arbitrary change of lasat machine numbers in revision 1.70 
of bootinfo.h means the lasat machines don't get very far in the boot
process. I use this number as an index into several arrays to dynamically
set up the minor hardware differences between the two machines, 
it being off by one causes a horrible crash the first time one of the 
values is used.

Was there a good reason for the change or can you apply the following patch
to allow these systems to boot...?
