Actualy i have the same problem i have just made a HD with M0n0 on it
and the mashine wont boot. It workes fine from Cdrom but it wont boot
the mashine just stope after memory an dhd check. Strang it is like it
is looking for some kind of boot record and cant find any thing it knows
I thing. It's a 4-5 year old machine. And a 3-4 old HD 8.0Gb both are
working fine.

Depends on what that OS setting does.  I'd imagine "other" would be
the best choice for BSD and Linux.  If I had to guess, I'd say it
would do what the PNP OS setting does, but since it has a separate
setting for that I doubt if that's the case.

I'd agree that it sounds like you're having an issue of some sort with
the hard drive.  That 2 GB drive has to be 8-9 years old or so, so it
wouldn't surprise me at all if it were dying, hence taking a lot
longer to spin up.
