Is this a Macintosh system with built-in Sonic Ethernet?  If so this is
a known problem when there is activity on the attached network.  You
could try some of the following:

Wait for a lull in network traffic before booting.
Make sure Appletalk is shut down in MacOS before starting Penguin.
Disconnect the network cable before booting.

The first one seems to work for me the majority of the time.  When it
doesn't I just reboot again.
