IIRC (pandora is down, can't look at the config..) the Atari kernel has
"optimization" for 020, 030 and 040, not for 060. Nothing in the advanced
section should be set.

AFAIK there is not much optimization, if you optimze for all processor
types, but you'd better ask that on the kernel list. I still think its a
kernel issue, if the kernel does not work if you select a valid kernel
option. Quick solution no "optimization" at all for Atari, then we have a
kernel which works on all Atari clones, right? Or is somebody else expecting
problems? But the real solution is to fix the kernel...

Can you have a look at the config file in the atari kernel image package
(when you have it, or whenever pandora comes back) and tell me if something
else has to be changed?

Thats somethingnelse, I think. The amiga kernel-image does not use any of
the advanced features. I think just for compatibility, but... ah, you know
it by now ;-)
