It must be the BIOS, sorry, I´ve forgot to take out the PCMCIA card. It
tried to boot from /dev/hdc and not /dev/hda (internal flash). Well, :)
the bios now comes up with an error, and I´m currently running the test
program now.

I like Linux a lot now. I will start learning Linux programming very soon,
(a lot of nice "Linux programming books" have arrived the marked now.
The best thing about my job is 100% time to explore Linux (I´ve started
one year ago with Linux administration and quit new to it too, but it´s
simple (eh?) and doing my M.Sc. degree besides it. :) Gotta have Linux
everywhere (sorry I meant GNU/Linux).
