I've got my Magnum 4000SC-50 set up, but I can't get a kernel to boot.

Using either the precompiled milo-0.27.1 milo/pandora or a milo that I 
compiled against linux-970710 (the corresponding pandora compiles but 
doesn't work) the machine appears to load the kernel but then just sits 
there with a blue screen. 

At the "run a program" prompt;

a:milo (floppy spins 1 min, drive light goes out, blue screen forever)

Pandora> boot 
        Kernel text at 0x80000000, size 1211344 bytes
        Kernel data at 0x80127bd0, size 0 bytes
        Kernel bss at 0x80127bd0, size 127636
        Kernel entry at 0x80000494
(the floppy spins 8 min, drive light goes out, blue screen forever)

Pandora> boot vmlinux (Same as above)

I've tried this with three different 970710 kernels including the one 
that works on my 4000PC. I believe I had this problem with my 4000PC-50, 
but milo-0.27.1 with 970710 fixed it.

The machine has the standard Magnum video card, 16 MB RAM, Matsushita CD 
on ID=3, no hard drive.

Does anyone have their 4000SC booting? What kernel/milo/pandora did you
