I have the suspicion that you are running into a bug Harald and me
solved when booting my /150 from Disk. It seems the Firmware KN04 V2.1k
doesnt correctly reset/disable the SCSI Controller and the Ethernet
chip causing the system to crash immediatly in the "request_irq" section.

I guess the backtrace is bogus but i might be wrong. I would recommend
trying to compile a current cvs kernel yourself and retry.

     Why is it called "common sense" when nobody seems to have any?
