Hi all,

I tried booting of CD-rom but that doesn't work. It doesn't boot at all, the
cdrom does boot (partly) on my laptop.

The weird thing is, I can boot OpenBSD 3.8 or other bootable cd's without
any problems.

I guess I'll look for a compactflash -> ide adapter and try again.

Kind regards,

Roy
